Considering the line was abandoned north of there to Intervale in 1972, zero would be an easy guess and likely answer.
That's a common miss understanding. Only the line north of Mt. Whittier, was abandoned in 1972, service continued as needed up to Mt. Whittier Station after that.
To answer Who's
question, unfortunately very little is known about the level of service between Ossipee Aggregates (the pit) and Mt. Whittier, from 1972 up until Guilford's purchase in 1983. I have no idea when the last trains departed Mount Whittier station, Mountain View station or even Ossipee station, I've been hunting for those answers the past 20 years. I do know, the grade crossings with bells and flashers (routes 28, 16 and 41) we're inspected regularly up until 1983, I assume that stopped when Guilford took ownership.
It takes real skill to choke on air, fall up the stairs and trip over nothing. I have those skills.
