Pennsylvania Station in Manhattan was the ultimate showcase of the Pennsylvania railroad, showing its might and influence in American transportation. Portrayed as it looked when it was built in 1910, this architectural wonder was the starting point and terminus for passengers traveling to and from all corners of the country.

Peter A. Lerro Jr.
Illustrator and Graphic Designer
As a boy growing up in the Philadelphia suburbs, Pete fell in love with the many trains, trolley cars, subways and buses he saw transporting residents and commuters around the city. Spending hours drawing and coloring these scenes was a daily occurrence and eventually became the passion that he wanted to pursue as a professional.
Perfecting his creative, design, production and illustration skills, Pete worked for various advertising agencies in the Philadelphia and Northern Virginia region. As an illustrator, Pete’s railroad reproductions are distributed worldwide and presently feature Northeast Railroads, traction and transit. He is currently working on commissioned paintings portraying other roads across the United States, including an exclusive painting and limited edition print for Scientific Models featuring the Keddie Roundhouse.
