THERE WAS LITTLE the Boston, Revere Beach & Lynn Railroad in eastern Massachusetts had in common with most of its three-foot narrow-gauge cousins across the United States. Its fleet of diminutive Bogie-type steam locomotives did not struggle up steep mountain grades with short mixed freight and passenger trains. They instead scooted over an eight-mile sea level double-track main line from East Boston to Lynn. Only one leading commodity was ever carried, passengers.
