Sunday Random Rail Shot
This isn’t really a rail photo, but it is a rail-related photo. What you see here is the Rt 4 bridge which spans the B&M Northern Line and the Mascoma River just west of Mascoma Lake. When driving Rt 4 one tends to not notice the river, or what is now the Northern Rail Trail, from the bridge. All you notice is a gap in the trees and a slight bump felt through the tires on either end. Still, the bridge has been there for a very long time and a lot of people have traveled across or underneath it, it’s pretty iconic in my view. This bridge will be replaced someday and I am sure the view from below will change; for now I am happy while it lasts to think that this is what B&M passengers, traveling on the Northern, saw when they looked out their windows.
