Little has been published on the essential art and science of railroad track maintenance before present-day mechanization. Here is the story delightfully and accurately recounted with an unusual sensitivity to the life and the accomplishments of the men who did this unusual work. In this anecdotal account, the reader will find insight into the relationship between the way we work and the people we become. While this account applies to railroading across the American continent, it draws specifically from track maintenance in Maine, a land of seasonal challenges. 121 Pgs Paperback
