Robert J. Yanosey founded Morning Sun Books in 1986 after a 15-year railroading career as an Erie-Lackawanna towerman, Penn Central trainmaster, and Conrail regional official.
In late 1978, he accepted the position of Chief, Bureau of Rail Operations for NJDOT, a position that morphed into Director of Rail Transportation for NJ Transit in 1980. Sensing the railroading he enjoyed was becoming a thing of the past, Bob left and created Morning Sun Books as a new career and means to work with and preserve the railroading he loved. For his first effort, he chose a subject most fans veered away from, but one with which he was quite familiar: the Penn Central.
Penn Central Power, a visual history of an American railroad tragedy, was a success and paved the way for many more railroad books covering the United States.
After more than 30 years and hundreds upon hundreds of titles later, Morning Sun Books generates around 50 new titles across its hardcover, softcover, and eBooks catalog each year.
