I am hearing that the pick up may happen on Monday at Hazens. They were planning to plow the line from N. Conway to Hazens today (Friday), but had some technical issues in the yard at North Conway, so I don't think it happened.

Why no more Day out with Thomas? Is railfans weekend going to be moved up in the year? Or is that cancelled as well? Also good to hear about the new workshop. I swear the new owners are adding on to the railroad every day. Next thing you know the railroad will operate all year round.

Ed Jafferys railroad is a M-F operation. I heard on the weather report that the Mt. Washington area was or is in the midsts of quite a snowstorm with winds of 70 mph. Another winter storm is forecast for this weekend. looks like CSRR will need to do some serious snow plowing just to get and or keep the Notch Line tracks open. I would guess with all the snow that has fallen & is due to fall this weekend that it will be late Monday or daytime Tuesday before the car gets down to N. Conway.

Poor timing on my part. Sounds like things are still a go for Sunday, per your Flickr caption

Today's second attempt at plowing the notch came to an abrupt stop when 252 put part of its front truck on the ground a few hundred feet east of Fourth Iron.
