More About the Author

GREGG M. TURNER was born in New London, Connecticut and raised in nearby Waterford. He was educated at Mitchell College, Eastern Connecticut State University and completed his graduate degree studies at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute. Currently he is Program Manager of Business Studies and a faculty member of Southern Technical College (formerly Southwest Florida College) in historic Fort Myers where, in 2009, he was named 'Educator of the Year.'

Keenly interested in trains and railroad history since childhood, he has authored numerous magazine articles and over a dozen books. His 'Connecticut Railroads, an Illustrated History' (published 1986 by The Connecticut Historical Society, Hartford) received a United States Congressional Certificate of Merit. His most recent work, 'A Journey into Florida Railroad History' (University Press of Florida) won the 2008 Florida Book-of-the-Year Award for non-fiction that was sponsored by Florida State University, the Florida Association of Libraries and The Florida Historical Society. His other railroad titles include: 'Railroads of Southwest Florida'; 'A Milestone Celebration: The Seaboard Railway to Naples and Miami'; 'A Short History of Florida Railroads'; and, 'Florida Railroads in the 1920s'. He additionally has authored two books about Fort Myers, Florida, the creation of Venice, Florida in the 1920s; and, a biography of transportation tycoon Henry Bradley Plant. During the 1980s Gregg served as a national director and curator of the Railway & Locomotive Historical Society at Harvard Business School.

Prior to moving to Fort Myers permanently, Gregg was associated for many years with the Allen Church Organ Company, having owned and operated that firm's Connecticut dealership located in Glastonbury.

The author has just completed a new book entitled "The Florida Land Boom of the 1920s," which will be released by McFarland Publishing in early 2015. E-mail the author at: greggturner@msn.com

This is a book that I had owned years back. I was looking for some specific photos that were contained in this book. Glad to have it back on my railroad bookshelf. The condition of the book was very acceptable.

Fantastic discussion of railroading past in Connecticut. Even the "present" discussed, is 25 years old - think VERY EARLY days of Metro North after it was spun off from Conrail!

A must have for any railfan, particularly those residing in Connecticut or New England in general!

Format: Hardcover
This is a "must have" reference for any Nutmeggers into railroad history. The book reviews every line built in Connecticut and has a multitude of excellent photos of each line. The text is well written and almost provides a firsthand account of the golden era of railroading. It captivates the reader like no standard reference book can.
