‘Steam in the Snow'
on the Conway Scenic Railroad
(Boston) -- North Conway, NH -- Notchland & Return
There's just something about crisp winter air that makes a steam locomotive look great! Save the date for Mass Bay RRE's seventh annual steam-powered photographers' special excursion on the Conway Scenic Railroad. This could be your last chance for a while, as 7470 comes due for her 15-year boiler inspection in July of 2014.
This unique event features multiple photo stops and photo runbys starring Conway Scenic's 0-6-0 steam engine 7470 (built by the Grand Trunk Railroad in 1921). As usual, we'll have the engine “pointed southward” throughout the trip for great photos in the mid-day light.

GRANITE RAILWAY Quarry-to-Wharf Tours
For over 25 years Mass Bay RRE has offered a unique opportunity to explore the remnants of the Granite Railway – the first chartered U.S. commercial railroad (1826), in West Quincy and East Milton, MA. The 3½-hour van tours have visited the preserved Bunker Hill Ledge terminal; the 1830 double-track incline; parts of the abandoned right-of-way; several quarries with spectacular views; the stone Neponset River wharf; some buildings associated with railroads and quarrying; and more!
Regularly-scheduled tours will be on hiatus for 2013, but organized groups may arrange private tours by contacting tour leader Vic Campbell at 617-822-4046
