The vibrancy of these short lines give us a picture of life in New England in the mid-1930s, after the Great Depression. These scrappy lines, some only 7 or 8 miles long, were often built to serve a specific commodity such as milk, ice, limestone, iron ore or granite, and their survival was dependent on both Yankee ingenuity and the market for these items. In the 1930s these railroads operated independently, beyond the control of the major rail systems, and did business much as they had done when they were first built in the mid-1800s.

In order on the DVD, we find these railroads: The Belfast and Moosehead Lake, The Knox, The Lake Champlain & Moriah, The Claremont, The Montpelier & Wells River, The Barre, The Saint Johnsbury & Lake Champlain and The Suncook Valley.
