  • How the Central Vermont Railway fought off railroad mergers, railroad abandonment's, and parallel highways to survive.
  • How the Providence & Worcester Railroad transformed into today’s 400 mile regional despite starting out as an obscure branch of the New Haven with a crew of three people.
  • How the Missouri & Northern Arkansas Railroad was able to operate despite the natural disasters and hostile terrain it had to fight to operate efficiently.
