Very well written and organized.

New England is a fairly small, compact geographic area compared to the rest of the USA and I suspect that the railroads which serve it exclusively lack the wide-spread name recognition of the larger railroads, (ones which span much larger geographical areas) such as say, the New York Central, Pennsylvania Railroad, Santa Fe, Union Pacific, etc). I know that in my case at least, I wasn't as familiar with New England railroads (other than the better known ones such as the Boston & Maine or the New Haven). Thankfully, Robert C. Jones, an author of a number of high quality railroad books has seen fit to provide us with this welcome addition to railroading libraries, one which details the operations of the railroads limited primarily to New England.

This book (published by Evergreen Press of Burlington, VT (Evergreen Press is owned by the author)) focuses on the six railroads which currently make up the Vermont Rail System, i.e. The Vermont Railway, The Clarendon and Pittsford Railway, The Green Mountain Railroad, The Washington County Railroad (Montpelier & Barre Division), The Washington County Railroad (Connecticut River Division) and The New York & Ogdensburg Railroad.

Each of these railroads has its own chapter, devoted to the particular railroad named in the chapter and its history. The final chapter is devoted to the combined operations of all of these railroads (now known as the "Vermont Rail System") through 2005. The book also includes an index, a bibliography and three appendices, one with a roster of locomotives and dedicated units on the Vermont Rail System, another dedicated to facilities and services (which includes advertisements (in color) of the individual railroads and which describe the services and capabilities each offers) and finally, one which provides very high quality, professionally printed color maps of the railroads.

While there are probably enough photographs of steam locomotives (in action) to satisfy those who are primarily interested in steam, the vast majority of photos are of a wide variety of diesel locomotive types in action. There are also plenty of shots of depots and complete trains (both freight and passenger).

The quality of the photos themselves (many of which are in color) is superb. They are well laid out and none span the book's "gutter" or center. The photos are universally clear and sharp (among the best I've seen on printed matter) and the colors are brilliant and vivid. The book (hardbound with a dust jacket and containing 295 pages) is one of the finest books on railroading that I've seen (and I've read several hundred). It's a "must have" for those interested in New England railroading and for that matter those interested in railroading anywhere. As of this writing it seems to be still in print so grab it while you can.
