The Metroliners

The Metroliners

From White River Productions comes a new book about one of the bright spots of Penn Central's existence: The Metroliners! This new book by Bruce Goldberg and David C. Warner tells the story of the development, marketing, and operational challenges, all of which led to the train becoming the most-used travel mode in the busy corridor between New York and Washington. Authored by industry insiders, The Metroliners follows the story from the turbulent 1960s to the development and introduction of Acela in the 21st century.
