Accomplished railroad author Frank Kyper spent many of his formative years in towns and cities like this throughout Vermont and New Hampshire, spending the 1940s through the 1970s moving around the area with his family. His free time was spent exploring local railroads like the Springfield Terminal, Claremont & Concord, Montpelier & Barre, Clarendon & Pittsford, and even the Mount Washington Cog Railroad.
His travels and interests in the region also put him in contact with the Rutland and the various branch lines of the Boston & Maine, and placed him front and center for the early formation of Steamtown and the Conway Scenic Railroad. His personal contacts with several railroad officials at the time, including the former president of the Rutland, gave him access to information as events unfolded that would drastically alter the landscape of New England railroading.
This title is a mix of over 160 Color and Black-and-White photographs illustrate the stories that are woven together to paint a picture of Vermont and New Hampshire railroading in its classic era.
