Conway Scenic Railroad Excursion

CVRTC Members enjoyed a great day on the former Maine Central Mountain
Division, in exchange for their efforts over the last year. Jon and Hank
did a great job piloting the group, and the weather couldn't have been much
better. We started our day, setting on Redstone, then backing down to the
Saco River bridge. From there, we headed West, clearing Mountain Junction,
and backing into North Conway. Track permit in hand, we headed to Fayban,
making stops in Bartlett and Crawford.
