Alstown action

BN geeps on mainline with empty box cars from the trip up on the siding. I don't have very many memories of this line when it was in operation because I was only 5, but the memories I do have are in Alstown. My dad used take us on Sunday drives and would sometimes let us play on the box cars.
One time in the late winter of 1985-86, my dad and mom took my brother and I down the tracks from Alstown to the tunnel. We did it on snowmobiles. I can still remember crossing over the trestles and watching the water rush underneath. Arctic Cat Panther 440's carried us all the way down and back never touching snow at all. Just ties. Fun times......
