"Manchester, New Hampshire was once among the very busiest locations on the Boston & Maine Railroad. "Queen City Rails: Manchester's Railroads 1965 - 1990" by Rick Kfoury covers the Boston & Maine and its successors in Manchester and on the surrounding branchlines during that crucial period when New Hampshire’s Queen City began to transform from a gritty industrial hotspot to the modern city it is today.

"Scores of rare photographs from some of New England's most prolific railroad photographers and collections provide an in-depth look at Manchester Yard, switcher jobs, industrial customers, passenger operations, the 1980 MBTA trials, Manchester's three branchlines (The Portsmouth Branch, the Goffstown Branch and the Manchester & Lawrence Branch). You'll see he early Guilford years, the arrival of the New England Southern and more."
