Vermont's Granite Railroads: The Montpelier & Wells River and the Barre & Chelsea ~ by Hugh A. Hornstein
"For over a century, short line railroads have served the people of Vermont and their world-famous granite industry. The Montpelier & Wells River, the Barre & Chelsea, and allied lines (including the steepest adhesion railroad east of the Mississippi) have moved everything from poultry to granite monuments, and they've occasionally needed all their Yankee ingenuity to do so. Vermont's Granite Railroads chronicles the development and year-to-year life of this rail network--with all of tis quirks, accomplishments, hardships, and tragedies. Over 300 fine historical photographs illuminate both railroad operations and the techniques used in quarrying granite." 277 pages.."  ~ Pruett Publishing Company.
