Back in the 1930s when steam was the way to travel, an intertwined system of lines carried freight and passengers through the hills and hinterlands of New England. Six main lines of New England steam are shown here in rare archival film, from the largest locomotives – Central Vermont 2-10-4 Texans – to the sleek, streamlined I-5 New Haven Hudsons.. We’ll see:
(1) The Canadian Pacific and Quebec Central cross the U.S. Canadian border at least twice to traverse the state of Maine and deliver goods from Montreal to the Maritimes.
(2) The Bangor and Aroostook Railway takes a winter trip through Millinocket, a town created by the Great Northern Paper Company.
(3) The Rutland snakes through Bennington and Bellows Falls, Vermont. Ever-practical New Englanders hitched the humble milk car to the back of the Green Mountain Flyer, the crack passenger train from New York to Montreal.
(4) The Central Vermont Railway, shepherded by three generations of the Smith family, is covered in depth, including consolidations on the way freights Palmer to Brattleboro, mammoth Texas type 2-10-4s wheeling the Chicago-East Coast manifest freights, and the high-drivered 600 Mountain Class on the premier name trains between Montreal, New York and Boston.
(5) The Grand Trunk Railway, appears, using monster 6100 class Northerns on the through passengers and smaller power on the way freights.
(6) The New Haven is shown with some of the very last three-cylindered 3500 class, as well as magnificent streamlined I-5 Hudsons.
