J.E. Henry's Logging Railroads
J.E. Henry's Logging Railroads, by Bill Gove, revised and expanded Edition, 2012. This large-format softcover book is a detailed, authoritative and profusely illustrated history of the two logging railroads operated by the infamous timber baron, J.E. Henry: the Zealand Valley Railroad (1884-1897) and the sprawling East Branch & Lincoln Railroad (1892-1948) in the Pemigewasset Wilderness. The new edition is 100 pages longer than the original, and features more than 240 photos, maps and charts, detailing nearly every aspect of Henry's lumbering operations, and of the Parker-Young Company that succeeded him. The author, a retired forester and noted logging railroad historian, conducted exhaustive research and obtained many firsthand accounts and anecdotes from the woods workers themselves. There are numerous photos of the woods oeprations, the logging camps, the locomotives and railroad cars, and the Lincoln mill operations. The book also features a map of the Zealand line and three of the East Branch & Lincoln - one for the Henry years, another for the Parker-Young years, and a third showing what years each area was logged. 308 pp, 8" x 10 1/2."
