About this title


As the twentieth century dawned, the Boston & 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 & Maine in the 20th Century continues the first pictorial history of the railroad company, entitled Boston & 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.

About the Author:

To preserve and document the history of the region’s transportation giant, author Bruce D. Heald worked extensively with the Boston & Maine Railroad Historical Society. Historian, educator, and railroad enthusiast, he has dedicated Boston & Maine to the society for its generous assistance and support in assembling this memorable reflection of American railroading.
