Last week continued a busy summer on the NHCR, both the Groveton and North Stratford lines.
As noted previously, considerable track work (new ties and ballast, surfacing) was completed on the Groveton. Now Maine Trackworks is working with the NHCR to replace a culvert, install new ties and ballast, and surface the North Stratford line. When we drove by last Thursday, they were installing ties just north of Lovejoys.
Meanwhile, three locomotives were present at Shops, including NHCR GP9 7324 (in the shop building), GMTX MP15 205 (parked north of the shop building), and ST GP7 72 (stored south of the shop building). There were also quite a few cars being placed into storage.
All of this was visible from public highways; please respect private property.
All the best,
