“60 years ago, in 1962, F. Nelson Blount’s Monadnock, Steamtown & Northern Railroad thundered out of Keene on the Boston & Maine Railroad’s Cheshire Branch, briefly returning the Elm City to the nostalgic era of steam railroading. Meanwhile, plans for the largest steam railroading museum in the United States, Steamtown U.S.A., bubbled to the brink of possibility for Keene only to be extinguished by red tape and political delays. In a dynamic presentation, Rick Kfoury, author of Steam Trains of Yesteryear: The Monadnock, Steamtown & Northern Story, will examine Keene’s last chance for railroad prominence with never-before-seen photographs, documents, 8mm film, and in-person accounts.”
