THIS oft-requested companion to The Rail Lines of Southern New England is packed with information about all of the rail lines of Maine, New Hampshire, and Vermont. Author Robert M. Lindsell, a veteran of the transportation industry with international experience, has distilled the wealth of information about Northern New England railroads into capsule accounts of 77 lines, from their beginnings in the 19th century through today. Each chapter includes a comprehensive summary of the development of a separate rail line and its branches; a map detailing the line's relationship to other lines; an all-time station list; and summaries of construction dates, operators, passenger trains, and abandonments. With over 100 vintage and current photographs, no other publication has ever brought together so much information in one handy reference guide.
