Summer 1998 Track Cars Group Visit Whitefield, NH

   

Coming up NH Interstate 93, here's what you can see.

There is a group of people who own and restore cabooses in Tilton. Most weekends in the summer they hook up to an engine and go on a two day excursion, sleeping in their cabooses. Some owners rent out their cabooses for a weekend.

Next you'll come to the Hobo Railroad in Woodstock, right off the Interstate. They have a museum and gift shop, as well as train rides along the scenic Pemmigiwasset River for several miles south.


Clark's Trading Post, 45 minutes south on Route 3 - Excellent! Has a great Black Bear show. These bears have really got it made. Also be sure to go in the Magical Mystery Mansion and try to figure out which end is up, take a ride on the train behind a wood burning locomotive. Look out for bandits! A great deal more there, plan on spending the day.

    Crossroads of America is on route 302 in Bethlehem at the intersection with Trudeau Road. A fellow dedicated to model trains has assembled a museum and model train exhibit in his quite large house. One of the setups takes up the entire top floor.

Howies on route 302 between Littleton and Lisbon is a museum well worth seeing. When you stop by you'll wonder why I sent you to such a small place. From the look of the outside there can't be much there. Once you get inside you'll be amazed. It's like Dr. Who's Tardis. Waaayyy up in the real boondocks of the Great North Woods Region is a tremendous G-Scale Garden Railroad. I won't tell you exactly where it is, as the place isn't set up for large amounts of people. It's a private hobby railroad, but the owner is glad to show folks around it.

You'll have to solve the riddle at
Secret Places to find it.



The New Hampshire Railroad always has something going on in the middle of Whitefield on Route 3. There are several cabooses and some passenger cars being worked on. Near where the track crosses Route 3, look for the ball signals. If you look north along the track you'll see another interesting signal behind the old train station.

The only known Ball Signal in operation in New England is next to
NH Route 3 in Whitefield, New Hampshire. The wooden ball signal tower was erected by Maine Central Railroad in 1875

The Mount Washington Cog Railway is about 45 minutes south of Lancaster.

 

There is an interesting RR trestle in Crawford Notch about 45 minutes south of Lancaster on the way from Twin Mountain to North Conway on Route 302. You'll see a streamlined train, the Boston and Maine Yankee Flyer beside the road between Bartlett and Glen on Route 302. If you're headed south from Lancaster it's on your left not too long after the Road Kill Cafe and a covered bridge. (Well, you used to anyway. It's over in Claremont being restored for use right now!)
The Hartmann Model Train Railroad Museum and Hobby Shop is about a mile south of the intersection of Route 302 and 16 below Pinkham and Crawford Notches. It's HUGE with a really great exhibit and store. Also has a cafe and craft shop. It's in the town of Intervale. 603-356-9922 or 356-9933 About two hours west of Lancaster on Route 15 in Vermont is a covered RR bridge that the last I saw was being restored.
