Return of the Pumpkin People in Jackson New Hampshire. Along with the Honeymoon Covered Bridge in the background.
Keeping with my yearly tradition, and, my insane love for trains. I caught The Conway Scenic Railroad Notch Train coming through The Gateway into Crawford Notch last week.
Conway Scenic Railroad in North Conway New Hampshire… Conveniently, right next to a Ben&Jerry’s. The owner of the Ben&Jerry’s is a really nice guy…
Honeymoon Bridge (also known as Covered Bridge No. 51 or the Jackson Covered Bridge) is a wooden covered bridge over the Ellis River in Jackson, New Hampshire.
Conway Scenic Railroad GP7, 573, returns from a trip down the Valley.
Ex-Maine Central unit acquired from Guilford Rail System. Typically referred to as “Mr. Miller’s Engine”, 573 was the preferred power for the Maine Central business train by the president of the Maine Central Railroad, E. Spencer Miller. 573 led the last business train through Crawford Notch (St. Johnsbury to Portland) shortly before Guilford closed the line in 1984. When Guilford acquired the Delaware and Hudson Railway in 1984, 573 became Delaware & Hudson 573. In 1988 when Guilford sold the D&H, they kept 573 and assigned it to Springfield Terminal and renumbered it 27. 573’s first season at the Conway Scenic (1996) was operated as number 27. Today 573 is the typical motive power for Valley Train excursions.
My mother took this picture. I think she did a good job.
