INDEX

"Forty Miles, Forty Bridges: The Story of the Frankfort & Cincinnati Railroad is an intimate telling of a fascinating facet of Kentucky history that has never been addressed in such detail. One of the fabled "Ghost Railways of Kentucky," the F&C's roots were deep in the speculative development of Kentucky's railroad network.
Ken Hixson's exhaustive research and folksy telling -with plenty of photos and maps - bring to life what could have otherwise been just one more corporate history of a company few care about.
Forty Miles, Forty Bridges is a book anyone interested in railroad history, Kentucky history, corporate history, or unique family history will find enjoyable and informative."
