The Pennsylvania Railroad and subsidiaries

This is a list of 313 PRR subsidiaries either wholly owned, leased and businesses in which the PRR had partial ownership/interest. This is not a list of predecessor companies, that list numbers over 1100. 

Some of the companies in our list were dissolved by the PRR sometime during PRR ownership. We believe this list is accurate. However if the reader finds an error or omission, please contact us with your research so we can make the updates, thank you.
