An excellent overview of many different New England Railroads for the time period 1948 -1968. The photos are all of excellent quality as is the norm for Morning Sun Books. My only problem with this book is that there is absolutely nothing at all in here about New Hampshire

An excellent overview of many different New England Railroads for the time period 1948 -1968. My only problem with this book is that there is absolutely nothing at all in here about New Hampshire. Every other New England State is covered. The B&M Mainline (now Pan Am Railways) from Boston to Portland and beyond passes less than half a mile from my house and I had hoped to see something in here on that.

New England Classics Volume 1 All-color railroad book features Maine Central, Boston & Maine, Central Vermont, Bangor & Aroostook, Canadian Pacific’s Vermont operations and Conrail with map and index.

The twenty years covered in this book were a colorful time for New England railroads. There were still many systems crisscrossing the states, from backwoods branch lines to the high density electrified territory of the New Haven, trains that operated with a variety of motive power. Both the New Have and the Boston & Maine experimented with several different paint schemes which added to the color of the era. The CN and CP also operated lines, adding to the diversity. EMD, Alco, GE, FM and Lima are all represented on this tour of the rail yards from New Rochelle, NY north to Canadian border and then along the coastline from Connecticut to Northern Maine. 128 pages.

Photos in this book are well chosen and uniformly well reproduced with intelligently written captions. There is a good mix of steam, diesel, and electric locomotives. Inclusion of the little Springfield Terminal was a treat! It would have been nice if a few more New England short lines had also been included. I would have rated the book with five stars instead of four except that the title "New England Rails" would lend one to expect that all six New England states would be represented and, alas, the author neglected New Hampshire.

Great book with lots of color pictures of an era that's now disappeared.

An excellent overview of many different New England Railroads for the time period 1948 -1968. The photos are all of excellent quality as is the norm for Morning Sun Books. My only problem with this book is that there is absolutely nothing at all in here about New Hampshire. Every other New England State is covered. The B&M Mainline (now Pan Am Railways) from Boston to Portland and beyond passes less than half a mile from my house and I had hoped to see something in here on that. The line is covered in the book with photos from Boston(North Station) and Portland and other Maine locations. I expected to see something from NH in here. Dover, Rockingham Junction, Rollinsford Junction, the Branch Line to North Conway or the Maine Central route through Crawford Notch were among the possibilities but none were covered. I guess the photographers of that period took I-95 from Mass to Maine and completely missed any of the action in NH. In spite of the omission I still enjoyed this book and would recommend it to fans of New England Rail. Since rating this book as 4 Stars would be unfair(I would actually rate it as a 4.8) I have rated it as a 5 star.
