The West River Railroad

Brattleboro, VT

Built in 1879 West River Railroad, was originally a narrow gauge that ran 36 miles linking the industrial communities of Brattleboro and Londonderry. It was later rebuilt to standard gauge but abandoned in 1936. 16 miles are now rail trails. I biked the short but scenic first three and a half mile section out of Brattleboro.
