Major Bill Kenny 128 pages softcover
Maine is populated with
intriguing characters who set in motion a fascinating, compelling story
of railroads and the unique communities they helped to build. One of the
first states to build railroads and trolleys in the United States,
Maine at one point had more than ninety communities with trolleys.
Standard-gauge and "two-footers" crossed the state, including the St.
Lawrence & Atlantic and the Bangor & Aroostook. From an
international electric trolley to the attempted World War I dynamiting
of a railroad bridge between the United States and Canada, the state is
home to a rich rail heritage. Join Bill Kenny as he takes you on a
journey from the first tracks made of wood to today's high-speed
Downeaster Amtrak train.
