    Beautiful. I know it’s just a hobby but what you’re doing is important work.
    Stupid that people think that girls don’t like trains. It’s amazing how many people get trapped into their own little thinking boxes sometimes.

    Keep up the good work!

    Very cool! That’s an incredible restoration job they did – nice to see at least some people still care about history.

    I’m still trying to get over the Metropolitan Water Board flooding a third of my town including the Boston & Maine rail line and the Sawyer’s Mills area and single-handedly ruining the industrial and agricultural future of the entire town so the people of Boston could have clean water. So what if it happened 114 years ago?

    PS: Happy belated birthday, IRideTheHarlemLine!

    Came accross your blog and the bit here on the Canaan Station Restoration. Canaan has an annual event called RR days that goes on over a two week period. This year as in last year the Housatonic RR. will be running passenger excursions in conjuntion with Berkshire Scenic Railway between Canaan station and Great Barrington, Mass. It is a scenic ride of about 15 miles over the old NH. Berkshire line in vintage coaches supplied by Berkshire Scenic Railway. The trains run on Sat., Sunday July 9-10, 16-17, 2011. Our model RR. club (Torrington Model RRs.) will have small operating layouts in the station. Proceeds from the train rides help fund the station rebuild. Its well worth the trip for those who like trains and want to ride on some rare milage.

      Hi John, thanks for the message! I’ll definitely have to check that out. I think I am busy on that first weekend, but I will certainly try to get there for the 2nd. Thanks so much for posting!

    Magnificent commentary. I wish there were more young people like you. I worked for 6 railroads in my day; (one of which is a streetcar company): 2 have vanished, 2 were merged into a larger railroad, and 2 survive.
