Railroads have played an integral part in shaping the identity of America, from carrying loads for industrial pursuits to connecting urban dwellers to recreational escapes in the countryside. In this volume, you will travel on the rail line that links New Hampshire's upper Merrimack Valley to the Lake Winnipesaukee region. From your window seat, you will watch beautiful, late-nineteenth and early-twentieth-century landscapes unfold. You will experience the diverse personalities of several whistle-stops along the way, and will visit picturesque riverside towns, such as Concord, Penacook, Boscawen, and Franklin on the Merrimack River; places on up the Pemigewasset River, like Bristol, Ashland, and Plymouth; and towns such as Tilton, Belmont, and Laconia on the Winnipesaukee River.
