Bar Harbor Express Book

SKU: PET-25
$20.00Price

An illustrated book describing what was called "the fastest overnight train in America". In an age before jet planes and highways, the "Bar Harbor Express" rushed politicians, diplomats, and wealthy patrons north from Washington, D.C. through New York and Boston, to Mount Desert Island and the refreshment of the Maine coast. After conversion to all-steel Pullman sleepers, Maine Central ordered express passenger locomotives 469 and 470. Today, the 470 is being restored to service, the final survivor of New England's most luxurious train and the era of gracious living on the rails. The book details the steam locomotive and its parts in detail. Aimed at readers between ages 8 and 14 years, most adults will enjoy it as well.
