Depending upon the day of the week there are either five or seven trains running in both directions.
I like knowing I live in a town with a train station. I even like hearing the distant whistle.
I was at the University of New Hampshire, Durham, last Monday and was taking a break with friends at The Dairy Bar which is housed in the restored train depot when I heard the whistle. I was able to grab these shots as people headed for the platform.
I haven’t ridden on a train in a couple of years. I think I’m due to at least think about a trip because there is something about standing on the siding and hearing the conductor shout all aboard.
Where would I like to go on a train – Maine. I’d ask a Dover and South Carolina friend to join me because she is always up for a fun adventure.
There are three Maine bloggers I’d love to have lunch with – Denise at Fernwood Nursery, Laurie at Notes from the Hinterland, and Brenda at Old Dogs New Truck. Then we’d head farther north to visit two South Carolina friends at the Maine and Nova Scotia border. Perfect train trip – guaranteed to result in a lot of smiles, laughter, and great conversation.
When’s the last time you rode on a train?
