Maines Sandy River and Rangeley Lakes Railroad is certainly one of the most intriguing rail systems ever built. Its rails were only two feet wide, yet they provided a unique and personalized service to the people of Franklin County, Maine for more than 50 years. Constructed in the late 1870s as the Sandy River Railroad, it was consolidated in 1908 with several smaller lines to form the largest two-foot gauge railroad in the country. It reached its zenith in the next ten years. But by the 1930s the depression, the automobile, and the truck had made their impact felt. B/w illustrations on every page. Index. Bibliography.
