The Lakeside and Marblehead Railroad ~  by Dean K. Fick
The Lakeside and Marblehead Railroad
"Built in 1886, exactly 6.88 miles long, it was soon purchased by the large Kelley Island Lime & Transport Company, an acquisitive conglomeration that consolidated all of the area quarries into one huge operation by the middle 1890's.    In all, the L&M served the KIL&T Company and its home towns for 78 years–till 1964. And along the way, it utilized a rich variety of equipment: converted narrow gauge passenger cars, 0-6-0 switch engines, Shays, Fairbanks-Morse and McKeen gasoline motor cars, and first generation diesel switchers."  ~ Montevallo Historical Press

Little BookCliff Railway: The Life and Times of a Colorado Narrow Gauge ~ by Lyndon J. Lampert
Little BookCliff Railway: The Life and Times of a Colorado Narrow Gauge
"For nearly four decades, this unique little narrow gauge that traversed an eleven-mile stretch of high desert between Grand Junction, Colorado, and the Book Cliff coal mines, brought economic growth and stability to the Grand Junction area. ... It is the story of a Shay-powered, coal-hauling railroad, small enough to have nicknamed its little steam locomotives, yet ambitious enough to nearly succeed as one of the west's major transcontinental trunk lines."
Louisiana and Arkansas Railway: The Story of a Regional Line by James R. Fair
"This first history of the L&A traces the line's development from the early boom days of railroading to the modern era of takeovers. Known as "The Better Way," the L&A was established at the turn of the century and expanded by shrewd acquisitions to connect New Orleans to Dallas. Generously illustrated with photographs, maps, and diagrams, the book tells the story of a premier line that remained enduringly profitable until its eventual takeover by the KCS in 1992." ~ Northern Illinois University Press ~ The Louisiana and Arkansas Railway: The Story of a Regional Lined for Success: The Butte, Anaconda & Pacific Railway
