Iron Roads of the Monadnock Region brings to life the story of the now largely-forgotten railroads that once operated in the rugged mountains and valleys of the Monadnock Region of southern New Hampshire, shining new light on the roads’ stories from their beginnings to the present. Seven years in the making, and enriched by over 700 images, maps, and tables, the two volumes of Iron Roads are an essential reference for the serious railfan.

Volume I covers the formation and operational history of the railroad network in the Region, encapsulating the beginnings, glory years, and end of the Region’s railroad era, as well as detailing the histories of four roads built before the Civil War: the Vermont & Massachusetts, Cheshire, Sullivan, and Ashuelot.

Volume II continues with the construction and operational histories of railroads built after the Civil War, when railroad-building euphoria swept the Region. It covers the Worcester & Contoocook, Manchester & Keene, Ashburnham, and Ware River roads, as well as street railways and little-known quarry roads.
