Laurel Line - An Anthracite Region Railway by James N.J. Henwood and John G. Muncie -published by Tribute Books-214pp.
Laurel Line - An Anthracite Region Railway New Second Edition with improved photo reproduction. Based on the survival of the Laurel Line's corporate records, authors Henwood and Muncie make the most out of this historical treasure. In the book, the railway emerges in human terms of strife, struggle, victory and defeat. The reader learns not only what happened, but why, and who made it happen. All railroads and interurban railways are interesting if properly researched - the Laurel Line as portrayed in this work is profoundly interesting. Many classic photographs from Edward S. Miller and other rail photographers illustrate the story. Reproductions of maps, car plans and other memorabilia are also presented.

History of the J. G. Brill Company by Debra Brill-published by Indiana University Press-272pp., 289 b&w photos & line drawings

History of the J. G. Brill Company A fascinating variety of open, closed, convertible, and semi-convertible cars, propelled by horse, steam, cable, and electricity, parade through the pages of this book. These old cars have a hold on the affections of many, and hundreds of them have been preserved in museums throughout the world. From a small horsecar-building firm established in 1868, the J. G. Brill Company grew to be a world leader in a rapidly evolving and growing industry that at the time of the First World War was the fifth largest in the United States. Besides its successful line of trolleys and other electric cars, Brill built horsecars, cable cars, narrow-gauge and gas-propelled cars for railroads, and even buses and trolley buses. The Brill policy was to build whatever the customer wanted. With no job considered too small or too peculiar, some delightfully wacky cars were produced. Appendix A lists many of the world's trolley museums and tourist trolley lines where Brill cars can be found, and gives a list of all cars built by the firm. Appendix B lists the trucks and other specialties of the Brill Company. Debra Brill is a great-great-great-granddaughter of John George Brill, the founder of the J. G. Brill Company. Curiosity regarding the family business and an interest in historical writing prompted her to embark on a mission to unearth as much information as possible about the Brill Company and record the facts for posterity. Through a better understanding of Brill Company management and exposure to previously unpublished office documents concerning the later years of the company, the reader will also gain new insights into the Brill/ERPCC/Brilliner situation.
