Mixed Train Daily – A Book of Short-Line Railroads. By Lucius Beebe

Copyright 1947. This is a fourth edition 1961. Published by Howell – North Books

Mixed Train Daily¬†is not concerned with main-line railroading — although there is main-line material here wherever it is an integral factor in the story of the short lines. This book is about the little railroads of homely destinies, the trains of yesterday that survived the longest. In this book will be discovered the legendary Virginia and Truckee Railroad, whose record is is the romance of the Comstock Lode in bonanza times; the narrow-gage roads of southwestern Colorado, the Frankfort and Cincinnati, a railroad populated on bourbon whiskey, and the St. Johnsbury and Lake Champlain, whose rails run through the last wooden covered bridges of New England. Illustrated with 300 black & white photos and 6 colored plates. 368 pages
