WINTER 2017: This issue ┬áleads off with a look at the Baltimore & Ohio operations in and around M&K Junction during the Chessie System years on the old Cumberland to St. Louis main line. Next, you’ll get a good look at how the western half of the country deals with cold temperatures and heavy snowfalls in our “Winter in the West” gallery. Olev Taremae visits the old Maryland & Pennsylvania shortline, while Mike Bednar takes us to the final years of the old Lehigh Valley line running through his backyard. All this and more in the Winter 2017 issue of TRP!
