Forgotten Railroads that Transformed Winthrop, Orient Heights, and Revere Beach, Massachusetts

Now in hardcover! This popular book from Winthrop native William Lieberman covers the little-known steam railroads that competed to serve—and sometimes initiate—real estate ventures along the beaches and marshlands northeast of Boston. This book recounts the stories of these railroads, both standard and narrow gauge, and the communities that grew up around them—not only their construction and operation, but also the people associated with them and the inevitable corporate intrigues. This will appeal both to railroad enthusiasts to those fascinated by Boston area history. This new third edition features improved graphics as well as numerous minor corrections and revisions from previous editions.
