08/09/2001 New England Railfanning

Driving back from my week-long hike on the Appalachian Trail, I decided to see what old Railroad artifacts I could turn up. I found quite a few great items on my trip, the highlight being the NH&VT RR (NHV) yard in Whitefield, NH, where many old pieces of equipment were stored. There were plows, flatcars, boxcars and even a friendly stationmaster who, after I asked, let me wander the yard and take pics. Had I known there were original, operating Ball Signals there in Whitefield I would have taken pics of them! Alas, I had no idea they were even there. Some great info and pics of the area can be found on The NERAIL New England Photo Archive.
