Sunday Random Rail Shot
If you get the chance, and you’re in central New Hampshire, head on down to the Winnipesaukee Scenic Railroad. The last time I rode the train it was pulled by the awesome, historical Alco S1 #1008 (ex-Portland Terminal), the ride was pleasant, and the whole experience was well worth the ticket price of around $14.00/adult ticket ($10.00 for each of our children).
How many places can you spend an hour on a passenger train, traveling along the shore of a scenic lake, for that price? As I recall the cars were mostly de-powered Budd RDCs but at least one caboose was in the consist for caboose rides.
Check them, and the entire Hobo Railroad, out at:
