Keystone Corridor Electrification – Southeast PA

Description

Electrification of the Keystone [rail] Corridor “west of Paoli to Harrisburg came in the 1930s, after the PRR completed electrifying its New York-Washington, D.C. section (the present-day Northeast Corridor).” The total cost … was financed by government-supported loans from the Reconstruction Finance Corporation and the Public Works Administration.”
