Today marks a dark day in White River Junction history as the venerable two
story yar tower between the former B&M yard and CV mainline was finally torn
down. The structure, which once graced the cover of Model Railroader magazine,
had fallen into disrepair over the years and the final straw was when local
youths tied (and failed) to burn it down. After a short investigation it was
confirmed that the structure was indeed on former CV (now New Engkand Central)
property and thusly they decided it should go.
