Modern Power for Today's Trains


I purchased this little booklet showcasing the PRR's "Modern Power" a few years ago and thought that it might be of interest to other PRR fans. Each page is saved as fairly large progressive jpg image (about 125K each.) They load in blurry at first and then get sharper as they load! Hope you enjoy it!
