Laminated hardcover, 11x8.5 horizontal format, 128 pages, 215 illustrations, maps, bibliography, index. "The Rutland & Burlington Railroad completed its mainline from Burlington to Rutland and Bellows Falls, VT in December 1849, connecting Boston with the Connecticut River and Lake Champlain thereby opening the Great Lakes and the burgeoning western markets to New England commerce. Thus began the fabled and much-loved Rutland Railroad. "This 128-page laminated hardcover takes the reader back to the pre-1925 era when steam was king. Local mills produced typical Vermont goods: woolens, textiles, limestone, talc, soapstone, marble, milk, lumber, wood products, leather goods, and paper. Small towns like East Wallingford, Ludlow, Proctorsville, Cavendish and Chester depended on the Rutland for their very existence. Experience a point-to-point journey over the Green Mountains from Rutland to Bellows Falls through more than 200 vintage illustrations, maps, ephemera, and Victorian advertising featuring stations, industries, hotels, and small town "main streets" in the Golden Age of Steam. "Information is included on connecting lines such as the Cheshire, Sullivan, Vermont Valley and other regional railroads. This title is printed at 200 line screen on 80# gloss enamel paper in a landscape format."
