The Boston Street Railway Association has a long and notable history of producing high-quality transit history publications. Along with our bi-monthly news magazine, RollSign, the BSRA regularly issues “Bulletins”, or books. Since 1961, we have published books on a variety of topics, from the PCC Cars of Boston to the Trackless Trolleys of Rhode Island, and everything in between. (And don’t forget—Regular & Intermediate Members in good standing get a copy FREE at time of publication!)
