Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Canton and the nearby cities of Massillon and Alliance are located in the great steel-making region of northeast Ohio and western Pennsylvania. Railroads brought coal, much of it mined in southeastern Ohio, and iron ore to the steel plants and hauled away the finished products. The Timken Roller Bearing Company moved to Canton in 1902 and in the 1920s began making roller bearings for railroad locomotives and rolling stock. Written in cooperation with the Akron Railroad Club, this book chronicles the history and development of the railroads that served Stark, Wayne, Holmes, Carroll, and Tuscarawas Counties. It shows how rail operations changed as the steel industry declined and railroad consolidations led to traffic shifts and route abandonment. Among the railroads that served this region were the Pennsylvania, Baltimore and Ohio, New York Central, and Wheeling and Lake Erie.

Book News Annotation:

This history of Canton, Ohio area railroads is composed primarily of charming archival photographs donated by members of the Akron Railroad Club. An introduction provides an overview of 19th century Canton railroad development while subsequent chapters discuss the different railway lines which serviced the region during the 19th and 20th centuries, including Pennsylvania Railroad, Conrail, Baltimore and Ohio Railroad, Wheeling and Lake Erie Railway, and the Ohio Central Railroad System. Railroad history enthusiasts will appreciate this contribution to the genre. Sanders is president of the Akron Railroad Club and the author of several books on railroad history.
