Maybe it’s because my best friends Dad was an engineer for the B&O or that we hung around the roundhouse in our community or that we went through the major rail center of Grafton, WV (home of first Mother’s Day), all back in the days of steam engines. Maybe it’s because toy trains were big in my youth and I had one, but I really just don’t know.
What I do know is that as we were driving thru North Conway during our New England trip and I looked to the right, saw RR equipment, and immediately made a right turn into their parking lot.
They occupy the station and yard of a former Boston and Maine RR location ad have the most rolling stock and motive power of any scenic RR I’ve seen – you’d love this Dave. First here is a shot of the station and other buildings which includes a functioning roundhouse with turntable for maintaining their equipment.
Have a great day and thanks for stopping by Almost Heaven South.
