Jim Shaughnessy is well known throughout the rail fan community as one of the premier scholars of New England Railroading. Jim manages to marry fine attention to detail and technical accuracy in a book which is accessible to all. The Rutland Road is a book that anyone interested in the unique and fascinating story of one of America's most storied roads should pick up. It is the definative short work on the Rutland Railroad and it is also a pleasure to read. — Cheryl Cornwell
