Question on these CV photos...
Cheshire from Winchendon to Walpole was abandoned in the 70s... But these pics are from early 80s?
Are they actually on the Vermont side (Conn River line)?

Couldn't tell you, we just chased the train.

This would be the Central Vermont Conn River mainline in North Walpole, NH. This being a northbound, Route 12 would barely be to Bruce's right and the Connecticut River not far to the right of that.

Thanks Al, at 76 I sometimes can't remember what I had for breakfast, let alone what I did in '83.

OK, this must be north of the Bellows Falls junction then. I was picturing the southern end.
