INTRODUCTION
In an article titled "Beyond the Information Revolution"
(Atlantic Monthly, October, 1999), the social scientist Peter E Drucker makes the observation that the railroad was the first truly revolutionary outcome of the Industrial Revolution. Unlike the development of the steam engine which preceded it, the railroad fundamentally altered human society and economies with its ability to link people and goods in ways and at speeds that had hitherto been unthinkable. From our perspective at the dawn of the twenty-first century, decades after local passenger rail service ceased in Maine and at a time when numerous branch lines have been abandoned altogether, it is difficult to fully appreciate the historic importance of railroads and the impact they had on the communities through which they passed. Although a renaissance of sorts appears to be in the making for limited passenger rail service in Maine, it is highly unlikely that we will ever witness again the network of railroads that were a vital part of life in the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries.
