The Sandy River and Rangeley Lakes Railroad Trip Part 2



by Chris Guenzler

Our Ride

We all got on the engine for a ride to the end of the track on the south end.











At the end of the track, we reversed and went foward to pick up the caboose which Robin and I would be riding on this unique railroad.







The trip back to the switch to get the caboose.





They backed onto the caboose. I gave Robin the cupola and I stood inside the back door of the caboose for our trip to the east end of this railroad.















We have travelled all the way to the east end of this railroad.

This passenger car is on display at the east end of this railroad.





This passenger car is privately owned and does not belong to the railroad.

Two views of the Sandy River.





In this view you can see the granite blocks of the old fort here in Phillips, Maine. On the way back we stopped to do a Photo Runby.

They backed the train to pick us up. We returned back down the tracks to the roundhouse area.





A railroad crossing sign. Once back we thanked our hosts for having us today on the Sandy River & Rangeley Lakes Railroad. We went back to the car but still had a few more photos to take.





Here is another old Sandy River & Rangeley Lakes Railroad building.

Boiler from Sandy River 1 or 2. We started back to New Hampshire but a covered bridge sign made us take a brief detour.







Maine Covered Bridge 1007 north of Bethel, Maine. We drove back to New Hampshire and almost to Intervale where we found another covered bridge.





The Jackson Covered Bridge. After that picture, I fell onto a rock and broke my finger. It was just hanging from my finger. I pulled on it to reset it and it worked. It would be sore for a couple of days but I was ok! I drove us the the Perry Motel in Intervale for the night.
