Railroads and streetcars have been part of the Amherst story since 1830. Local entrepreneurs were instrumental in the ideas, enthusiasm, and initial financial backing that attracted the three or more ventures that constructed steel rails on wooden ties in the 19th and 20th centuries. This book is full of nearly 185 years of Amherst railroad and trolley history, with photos, charts, maps, schedules, and diagrams to help the reader recreate the colorful past.
