Titanic Railroad: The Southern New England

The Story of New England's Last Great Railroad War

by Larry Lowenthal

Reads like a mystery novel...highly recommended.

—National Railway Bulletin

MYTH and mystery surround the never-completed Southern New England Railroad for which immense fills, deep rock cuts, and lofty abutments still mark its 85-mile route from Palmer, MA, to Rhode Island. Begun in 1910 by the Grand Trunk RR, the line was covertly fought by New England “Railroad Lord” Charles S. Mellen in a fierce battle exhaustively researched and eloquently recounted by historian Larry Lowenthal. Includes over 200 maps and illustrations, detailed maps of the route, and full color dust jacket.

Titanic Railroad is a gem. It belongs on the bookshelf of any serious student of New England railroads.
