"Pennsylvania RR Sharks: A Pictorial" is a glimpse at one of the Pennsy's exotic species of diesel locomotives. Filled with over 80 all-color photos, this book is a treasure of rare images by some of the best-known rail photographers. Included within are in-depth sections dedicated to each of the three main classes of Pennsy Shark locomotives along with their variants, as well as an article analyzing where the unique "Sharknose" style came from, an explanation of both Baldwin and PRR Shark locomotive classifications, and a complete roster list which includes information such as the serial number and retirement date of every Baldwin Sharknose diesel that served "The Standard Railroad of the World."
Truly, this volume is not only a tribute to Pennsylvania Railroad's Shark locomotives, but also a commemoration of those who operated and photographed them.
