... of all the steel in the world, and half of what was produced went into railroad rails. By 1867, steel rails were being rolled commercially at the well-known Cambria Iron Company in Johnstown from Bessemer steel made at the new Pennsylvania Steel Company plant in Steelton. Bessemer steel gradually became...
