The full title of this book is: The Sandy River and Rangeley Lakes Railroad and Predecessors: Equipment Manufacturers and the Equipment Volume 2.
The research here is extensive. This narrow gauge railroad obviously was well-documented through the years and records kept intact. Some of the very old photographs can be somewhat out of focus, but generally the photographs are very good and the reproduction on high-quality paper is excellent.
This volume includes manufacturers Hinkley Locomotive Works, Jackson & Sharp Co., Laconia Car Co. Works (Ranlet Car Co.), Maine Central Railroad, Miller's Platform and Couplers, New York Air Brake Co. (Eames Vaccuum Brake Co.), H. K. Porter Co., Portland Co. (Part 1). Here is a comprehensive look at the rolling stock, locomotives, passenger cars, freight cars, and non-revenue equipment manufactured for or by the narrow gauge lines in Franklin County, Maine.
