This weekend looks like a good bike riding weekend. I've looked for info regarding anything out of Kane or Marienville. Nothing new. Has the trail been completed? Where does it begin/end?

Thanks
SST

I was in Mt. Jewett yesterday.

The K&K tracks between Kane and Mt. Jewett were scrapped recently.

Rails and ties have been removed. I'll post pics to North American Rail soon.

I believe the Valley Railroad bought it.. and 'made' it into a New Haven steam locomotive...

Thanks to Charles Davis for the photo of the 3025. The Valley RR shop crew
did a super job in turning the burned loco from the Knox and Kane into a
New Haven loco working in CT
