Last Thursday, i was able to spend more than 2 hours at Bellows Falls, VT watching and taking pictures of the trains. I wanted to ride the Green Mountain Railroad but at this time of the year, they were running only on specific dates. However, I was able to see some shunting by a GP38-2 locomotive and managed to catch the 11:56am Vermonter heading towards New York.

The Bellows Falls station was a delight. It had railroad history books, maps and photos of its glory days. It also had an authentic early 20th century urinal stall that i forgot to take a picture of but did find one on the web. Apart from the tourist excursion and the daily Amtrak, the station also sees its share of freight operations.

Note: I have taken more pictures of the freight cars with rust and weathering details which i will post at a later date.
