The magazine covered a range of topics related to transportation, with a particular focus on the Penn Central Transportation Company and its operations. It featured news articles, feature stories, and photography related to the company's rail and freight services, as well as the people and communities it served.

Penn Central Post was first published in 1968, the same year as the Penn Central Transportation Company's formation, and was distributed to employees, shareholders, and other interested parties.

The magazine continued to be published throughout the 1970s, a period marked by financial struggles and operational challenges for the company. Despite these difficulties, Penn Central Post provided a forum for the company to communicate with its stakeholders and showcase its efforts to improve its services and operations.

Following the Penn Central Transportation Company's bankruptcy in 1970, the company's assets and operations were taken over by Conrail. Penn Central Post ceased publication around the same time, as part of the company's broader restructuring efforts.

Today, Penn Central Post remains an important historical record, providing insights into the rise and fall of one of the most significant transportation companies in American history. Its articles and photography continue to offer a valuable glimpse into the world of transportation and the role it played in shaping the United States in the mid-20th century.{{Categories}}
