The Pennsylvania Railroad went out of business as a separate entity in
the late 50's or early 60's. You're not likely to find much on this
section except in some historical archive. It's also not likely that the
Pennsy (BTW, usually abbreaviated PRR) would have specified rails in
kg/meter back then. Probably there's an AREA handbook of this vintage in
a University library that could get you some info.
