Bangor & Aroostook - The Maine Railroad (Winter Haven)

condition: excellent
Bangor & Aroostook - The Maine Railroad, by Angier, pub by Flying Yankee, 1986, 274 pages, hardcovers
***Limited Signed Edition***

"Wonderfully informative history of the Bangor & Aroostook Railroad, including the predecessor lines, the struggle to build the line, its expansion and successes through the Depression and World Wars, and then the struggles (ultimately unsuccessful) to keep afloat as the potato market shrank and the Penn Central interchange deteriorated. Illustrated throughout with black and white photos (and a color photo section) and maps. With all-time rosters for the locomotives and the buses, list of stations and station agents, and charts showing annual cost of removing snow, annual shipments of big game, and annual potato shipments."
Contents excellent. Please make an offer.
