Railroad history tour from Keene, Nov. 3

An all-day field trip exploring the Cheshire Branch Line of the historic Boston and Maine Railroad from Keene to points south is planned for Nov 3.

The trip, which begins at 9 a.m., will be led by conductors Brad Blodget and Dick Rogers whose meticulous research has helped preserve much of the history of the B&M Railroad. Blodget is the author of “Mariam Foster’s Boston and Maine Railroad,” a collection of photographs and insights into the way the railroad looked and operated in the mid-1900s.

The railroad tour will stop at former depots of the route along the way south to the State Line Station, including the newly restored Troy Depot. Participants should bring a brown bag lunch.

The daylong tour is being sponsored by the Historical Society of Cheshire County. The cost is $18 and $14 for members of the HSCC and will depart from the Historical Society at 246 Main St.
