So if you see some errors you think need correcting, I'd contact the railroad's Marketing Dept. directly with your suggestions to incorporate them into a future edition.

That's half the moons of the rest of the mountain, (how many millions already spent?) and it would still be more reasonable given the three active railroads it would connect.

Gilman was closed in 1999 and that was the effective end of the VT side of the Mt Div. That was GTIs only way into ST J or Whitefield as the Woodsville/Berlin branches were OOS.I stand corrected, then. I've read the Berlin branch was early 90's, (I wasn't old enough to see tracks on it) and if my memory is correct, everything past Industrial Park Rd. in Littleton was torn up roughly 1997-8ish.
