Wow… the State of New Hampshire owns the Flying Yankee. I did hear something like that a few years ago but refused to believe it. Hey maybe this is a step in the right direction for the state as far as railroading goes. (I wouldn’t hold, my breathe on it though.)
Out goes the Old Man of the Mountain and in comes, the Flying Yankee. OK maybe there is no comparison between the two but with the state of New Hampshire owning (opinionated) one of the most famous trains in the US. I will find it hard that the state will allow it, to go out of state. Well maybe all 6 New England States but I don’t believe it will ever go any further than that….. But who only knows, we will just have to wait and see.
And yes the Boston & Maine Railroad and the Maine Central Railroad are still around but boy is Guilford really messing things up. If they can’t operate a business well the least it could do his bring back the colors of the B&M and the MC Railroads. What is it with the Gray and Orange colors anyways, with the big G on the side? Talk about depressing. The best logo ever was the B&M’s Minute Man, logo… but anyways where talking about the Flying Yankee here not Guilford! Maybe the name of the Flying Yankee its self should also change and call it the Flying Red Sox…….. Yeah but anyways………………….
