Meatloaf's Rail Adventures #12

Heading North to New Hampshire

This was a four day trip with three different railroads.   Get ready for some lovely scenery and LOTS of photos!

Day One

The first day was a travel day.  It takes around 9 hours from PA to New Hampshire and we were very close to Maine's western border.
We met up with the rest of our friends at the hotel in Conway, New Hampshire for pizza and pirates!

We highly recommend the Comfort Inn & Suites Conway; gorgeous accommodations!  And if you have time, mini golf!

Day Two

Early Friday morning we headed over to the Conway Scenic Railroad and set on.  We went all the way up through Crawford's Notch to Hattie's Memorial Garden before heading back.  The garden is beautiful and sad.  It marks a spot where her family's house was before a snowslide (avalanche) wiped the house off its foundation and killed the family inside.  Part of the foundation and the boiler are still there.  

We passed the Mount Washington Hotel and got a nice view of Mt Washington in the distance.  It still has snow on it!

Just a few more from day one.

Day Three

Saturday morning we packed up, checked out, and headed to the Lake Winnipesaukee section of the Hobo Railroad.  The guys there were really nice!

Our first stop was the Ashland Station.

Then we stopped in Plymouth for lunch.

So gorgeous!  
We stopped at Ashland again on the way back.

From there we traveled to south to Sturbridge, Massachusetts.  Nope, we didn't visit the village.  

Day Four

Sunday we set on in Palmer at the Mass Central Railroad.  

All three were stunning!

Everyone headed to their homes after this last ride.  It was so much fun seeing everyone!

Have a wonderful day!  Stay safe and well!
