Sunday Random Rail Shot

Perhaps two of the most famous remaining pieces of B&M history, F7A 4266 and the North Conway Passenger Station.  I’ve been there on many occasions throughout the years and I never get tired of either.  If you get the chance to visit check out F7A 4268 as well.  While it is an un-powered hulk at this point, it is also a wonderful piece of B&M history and, in addition, differed from B&M’s other EMD F7s due to its more streamlined passenger pilot, having been an EMD demonstrator prior to serving the Boston and Maine.

Of course no trip to North Conway would be complete without a jaunt down the road to visit Gorham, NH where B&M F7A 4265 now resides.

A note to F-Unit fans:  B&M did own a fourth F7A numbered 4267 but it was severely damaged during an accident in a rock cut on Mascoma Lake, across from where I lived as a child, and was subsequently disposed of.
