By Mike Mason and Roger Starnes
Many young railroads around the Unites States in the late 1800’s were known as “Grasshopper” railroads because of the type of engines they used. Long after these engines were phased out, the name stuck. This is the story of the “Grasshopper” Railroad that was funded by farmers, often in bankruptcy, and was at one time owned by Mr. Henry Ford, running through mid-western Ohio for some 77 years.
Includes 40 historic black and white images from the author’s personal collection, as well as 97 black and white photos showing the current locations where the railroad used to run. Thirteen hand drawn maps indicate stations along the old railroad, and how to locate them.
A great book for railfans and history buffs alike!
