Publisher: The Garbely Publishing Company Reviews:"I have just finished reading every page of [the book], and it is outstanding! . . . [Garbely has] presented the facts in a most comprehensive, but extremely readable, format. I had intended to skim over it today, and read it at my leisure, but when I got into the first few pages, I found that I could not put it down. For any student of the LV, [Garbely deserves] the utmost credit." - Hays Watkins, former chairman of the Chesapeake & Ohio, Chessie System, and CSX from 1971-1988 "Mr. Garbely has done an amazing piece of original research. . . . He did a magnificent job in both the conception and execution of this paper. . . . So few students are interested in business and corporate history, and Mr. Garbely is exceptionally talented at it." - Dr. Richard Saunders, Jr., professor of history at Clemson University and author of Merging Lines: American Railroads, 1900-1970 and Main Lines: Rebirth of the North American Railroads, 1970–2002
