About This Show

The work included in this exhibition represents an ongoing effort to document and illustrate the complex history interwoven with engineered landscape of the Pennsylvania Railroad’s mainline across the Commonwealth. The railroad links economies of the past and present, traveling through small towns, remote countryside and industrial areas that once depended heavily on the railroad’s presence. Though the Pennsylvania Railroad has been defunct for almost 40 years its engineering prowess and foresight has left a legacy for current and future transportation networks and continues to provide the visual clues to tell the story of the rise and fall of the American industrial economy.
