Fick's history of this little 8 mile shortline railroad on the Marblehead Peninsula between Cedar Point and Kelleys more than just a technical and financial history of a railroad -- it is an exciting and well-written survey of transportation throughout Northern Ohio, with special emphasis on this combination vacationland resort and limestone quarrying industry. The perils of this little RR that 'could,' ranging from an obstinate cow on the tracks to a cantankerous McKeen gas rail car makes this both a humorous and delightful record of a truly unique treasure that operated in Northern Ohio for nearly 100 years. This book is a 'must' for Ohioans.
