Note: Cover image may differ from actual product

Two local railfans, independently, but following the same path, each set out with a vengeance to capture the last days of steam in the mid 1950's. The Central Vermont had not dieselized and so presented a great opportunity for them. Thanks to their efforts, we can follow the CV's feisty Consolidations through the four seasons. Towns featured are New London, Yantic, Willimantic, Tolland and Stafford Springs in Connecticut, Monson, Palmer, Belchertown and Miller's Falls in Massachusetts and Brattleboro, Essex Junction and St. Albans in Vermont. Parent Canadian National sent their excursion locomotive, giant 4-8-4 number 6218, to the CV for a trip between White River Junction, Vermont, to New London. You'll see her in all her glory, in full color! In a side trip, we visit the diminutive steamers of the "Rock of Ages" quarry.
