Triumph IV: Harrisburg to Altoon 1846-2001 by David W. Messer edited by Charles S. Roberts

The Middle Division is the subject of this, the fourth volume in the Triumph saga. The serpentine route from Marysville west to Altoona and Hollidaysburg, often improved, never replaced, was a tribute to Edgar Thompson’s Genius. This 155-year saga includes the full history of Altoona’s fables shops and yards, Thompson’s seminal 1848 report, and the ghost railroads that never made the cut.
