Our Society has published several books about the Boston and Maine Railroad. The most recent is Mid-Century Memories: The Boston & Maine Railroad: 1936-1950 by Robert L. MacDonald (2013). This book is the story of a B&M railfan--the author’s reminiscences of steam locomotives as a boy growing up near the B&M in Stoneham, Mass., and his train-watching adventures elsewhere on the B&M system.

Other books published by the Society:

  • The Best of the B&M Bulletin 1971-1980
  • The Central Mass. (First edition 1975, second edition 2009.)
  • Moguls, Mountains, and Memories (1979)
  • Minuteman Steam by Harry A. Frye (1982)
