Album Info:Here are thirteen photos of Pennsylvania Railroad switching engines. All of them come from the estate of Mr. Henry C. Westenberger, an avid collector of railroad memorabilia. A lifetime resident of Lebanon, Pennsylvania, he was also a member of the Lebanon County Historical Society. I purchased all of these items in a single eBay auction on Sunday, 8 July 2018.
