Stretch of Keystone Corridor rail line recogized for role in Underground Railroad

The cars, owned by three African American businessmen, were part of another "railroad" - the famed Underground Railroad. And now, along with other national sites recognized for their role in that endeavor, the railroad corridor is getting its due.
