Come along with Pentrex as we travel to the Northeast, exploring some lesser known railroads and railfanning locations. We’ll see the Housatonic Railroad, operating over former New Haven tracks in Connecticut and Massachusetts. Next we’ll take a trip on the Berkshire Scenic Railroad that shares the same tracks through the hills of western Massachusetts. Going trackside in Selkirk, New York we’ll watch mainline operations into and out of CSX’s giant classification yard.
The diminutive Grafton and Upton Railroad, west of Boston, is a tiny shortline dating back to the 1800s that is now expanding. We’ll chase their classic Geeps as they struggle with rollercoaster grades on their thrice-weekly turn. Then we’ll climb to the summit of New Hampshire’s Mount Washington aboard the “Railway to the Moon”, the famous Mount Washington Cog Railway. Watch as our steam-powered train muscles its way up a grade that reaches 37 percent!
Smaller railroads, classic motive power, and a few surprises! They’re all here for you to enjoy in Pentrex’s Northeast Sampler!
