In spite of being a lousy day out, I wanted to get out of the house. At 05:15 I heard the detector at mile 116 go off and just had to investigate. I watched 2 units run light through town and then went back to bed. NECR #324, normally through Brattleboro in the middle of the night, passed through at around 11:30, Amtrak #56 at 12:30 and Guilford's EDWJ (East Deerfield-White River Junction) went through at about 15:30.
(map) This town is on the New England Central Railway track near the New Hampshire, Massachusetts, and Vermont borders.
NECR #324 passes through Brattleboro with 3 units following a short Christmas break.
AMTK #56, the Vermonter, heads South out of Brattleboro, as seen through the windsheild on this very wet day.
MEC #EDWJ enters Brattleboro with 2 high-nose units and 31 cars.
