    The Billerica and Bedford (B&B) railroad at the time was the only    two-foot gauge railroad in the US. Many knowledgeable people said it could not be done. But this railroad was the vision of one man named George E Mansfield. His vision would not be deterred, and he created a state-of-the-art railroad for a town clamoring for a rail line. The   citizens of Billerica were wildly enthusiastic and the B&B made a profit everyday it ran. Yet this railroad lasted less than a year. What happened? We will explore and dissect this very        interesting story with its many turns and twists.
