So as to clear up any misundestandings about what my on line eBook treatise of the Erie Lackawanna is and isn't designed to do, it IS designed to be a CONDENSED history and description of this beloved railroad, its operations, and the people who made it all work, especially under trying circumstances. It is NOT designed to be a comprehensive indepth history of the railroad and its predecessors. While two thirds of it seems to deal with the Erie side, it must be remembered that the Erie made up two thirds of the railroad to begin with, and the Lackawanna, the rest. IN addition, it is a WORK IN PROGRESS. While it may seem like old hat to those who perused my site, ERIE LACKAWANNA-Anatomy of the Friendly Service Route, that some stuff has been covered before, maybe so, but not from the angle I am trying to cover. Constructive criticism is one thing, but I do NOT appreciate the snotty tone of some of the remarks posted after I let it be known that I am doing the book on line with hard copies available on request for a reasonable price to cover ink,paper, and my time. FYI Ihave used other books on the subject, my collection of EL and predecessors timetables (public and employees),magazines, freight schedule books, and other websites as my source materials.
