Clear Track Ahead Pt2 of 3

A Pennsylvania Rail Road promotional film from 1946 which details the activities of the railroad from inception through to the mid 1940's.

The PRR was the largest railroad by traffic and revenue in the U.S. throughout the first two-thirds of the twentieth century and was at one time the largest publicly traded corporation in the world. At its peak it controlled about 10,000 miles (16,000 km) of rail line. in the 1920s it carried about three times the traffic (measured by ton-miles of freight) as other railroads of comparable length such as Union Pacific or Santa Fe. The only rival was New York Central which carried around three-quarters of PRR's ton-miles.
