Description


The last passenger train departed Keene, New Hampshire nearly sixty-five years ago and all of the railroad branch lines that once threaded their way through the river valleys and rugged hill country of the Monadnock Region felt their last trains almost forty years ago. Today, the old roadbeds that were once busy arteries of daily life and commerce, resonant with the sounds of trains, are quiet places but for the wind and the calls of birds. While a fascination with the region's railroad past is almost tangible, the importance of railroads to the region from the 1840's through the mid-twentieth century is just unimaginable to most people today.

Iron Roads Volume III is a pictorial, carefully prepared to complement and enrich the first two volumes. Thumbnail historical reviews of the railroads discussed in the two earlier volumes are included, as well as yet another 300 images (ninety-seven in color). Selected pictures--the work of numerous photographers--represent mostly newly-discovered, unpublished material, rich in historic landscapes, railroad action, and people. An expanded look at the sole remaining major line--the former Vermont & Massachusetts Railroad--that runs across the southern edge of the Region is included. Since Volumes I-III are intended to be an integrated work, Volume III also contains both an errata and addenda for the first two volumes and a consolidated index for all three volumes.
