The Pennsylvania Railroad played a huge role in the expansion of the United States in the mid-to-late 1800s. It was at one time "the largest private company in the world, with thirty thousand employees [and] 3,500 miles of main track," according to the recent bestseller, Morgan: American Financier.
Our cousin Warren W. Miner spent more than 40 years working for the Pennsylvania Railroad, based largely at Everson, PA. He retired in 1934. Here, he stands proudly in front of a Pennsy locomotive, standing either at far left or second from left. Warren was the son of Civil War veteran Martin Miner.
