Post subject:  Constructing the A&S | The Engineer and the Contractor

A new post celebrating one of the last great projects of visionary PRR Chief Engineer William H Brown and one of his trusted contractors Patricius McManus.


File comment: One of seven cuts and a fill illustrated in this Manor Township view in Southern Lancaster County. Chief Engineer, William, H Brown, saw to it that the ablest contractors were employed to complete this challenging work promptly. The Manor section was contracted to Patricius McManus a very accomplished railroad builder and neighbor of Brown. Harry P. Stoner photograph, Kline Collection, Railroad Museum of Pennsylvania, PHMC
