Boston & Maine Railroad 2-6-0 Mogul-type locomotive No. 1455 heads a short freight on the Hillsboro, N.H., branch at Elmwood in 1949.

Our sister magazine, Classic Trains, named Boston & Maine the railroad of the month for October 2019.

Please enjoy this photo gallery of images from the David P. Morgan Library archives at Kalmbach Media that include B&M steam-powered freight trains through time.
