The story of how New England's "little giant" managed to order a fleet of streamline passenger cars and locomotives in the midst of the Great Depression and WWII. Doughty recounts how the company's management financed its acquisitions and turned the railroad around. He also tells the fascinating story of how the railroad under Howard Palmer, in the middle of WWII, prepared for the postwar period with passenger car and traffic research, revealing for the first time unpublished drawings, designs, and artistic renderings depicting the plans and dreams for the future.
