Boston and Maine in the 20th Century Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

As the twentieth century dawned, the Boston and Maine Railroad Company controlled virtually all of the rail lines in New Hampshire, as well as much of the service in Maine and Massachusetts. Ultimately, the company operated more than 2,000 stations in northern New England. The train was the most important mode of travel, and the stations were the center of the community. Boston and Maine in the 20th Century continues the first pictorial history of the railroad company, entitled Boston and Maine in the 19th Century. With more than 200 rare images and historical narrative, the book details the trains and their destinations: the terminals, stations, depots, and whistle stops to which they sped. Times changed, and the railroad was passed by; however, its legacy lives on.
