Maine Central #711 at Woodsville NH on the B&M.

Came across the fine photo of an MEC Passenger train which I assumed was taken somewhere on the Mtn Division.

Brian Dame provided the text below in August of 2007:
- "...fits Woodsville, taken from the crossing tenders two story shanty at Highland and Mill Streets. Train is heading south for Concord, presumably.

That should be the 2 story Woodsville station in the background behind the signal mast. The use of MEC motive power suggests this came from Portland up through Crawford Notch and over to Woodsville on it trip south through Plymouth and Concord to Boston.
