OLD PENNSYLVANNIA RAILROAD

The Pennsylvania Railroad began as the Philadelphia, Baltimore and Washington Rail Road and is now part of the Conrail and Amtrak systems. An ad in the New York Times on August 29, 1837 stated that the "new PW&B;" Railroad, running from Philadelphia to Baltimore was begun in 1834 and that the trip took three and a half hours. Railroad trains were ferried across the Susquehanna River until the mid 1860s.
