(The book) represents a standard of excellence for this genre, one which few other publications will be able to surpass but all can adopt as an example". -- Railroad History Possessing the flavor of all scenic New England railroads, the Rutland Railroad ran through Vermont and northern New York for more than a hundred years. Surviving bankruptcy, floods, and strikes, it competed with larger, stronger lines and struggled to operate on a smaller scale. Shaughnessy's The Rutland Road is a sweeping chronicle from preconstruction in 1831 to the twentieth century. Filled with over 500 photographs, the book contains some of the author's finest camera work. It will be of interest to railroad devotees, historians, and photographers.Hide synopsis
