Thanks all.. I was wondering if they would ever run freight (as Naugatuck do at times). I know that when B&M abandoned the Conway branch, Yield House used to ship furniture out.

Fortunately or unfortunately (depending on how you view it) the Silver Lake Railroad is not a real railroad. They run MOW type of equipment with flatbed style cars with canopies; each car may hold 15 to 20 persons max. So no, no freight.

Do they still run spreaders on the Wolfeboro? How many miles do you have and who owns the rail?

Nice report, glad to see this place is doing well. I wish I lived closer, so I too could help out. Hope the owner goes with the black with red and white stripes; it represents both the B&M and MEC. That scheme is one of my favorites.

The Excursion Train- with three coaches, an engine on either end.

The Extra- The Blue A6, flat car, NEW*** MOW Mower, and the Orange A6. Ask for a "cab ride" to ride on the extra.
