Boston & Maine’s Pompey Line once handled the Day White Mountain Express trains between New York and Berlin, New Hampshire. Today, the line is owned by the State of Vermont and leased to the Vermont Rail System.

On June 15, 2019, the Massachusetts Bay Railroad Enthusiasts are running an excursion train the full length of the line.

The train leaves the White River Junction Amtrak station at 10:30 am and travels north through Norwich, Pompanoosuc, Fairlee, Bradford, and Newbury to Wells River. There, the train will reverse direction and head back to White River Junction, arriving at approximately 4:30 pm.

The trip will include photo stops.

The train will consist of restored coaches and table cars from Green Mountain Railroad’s Green Fleet.

Limited food service will be available on board the train, and box lunches can be ordered in advance.

Bus service to and from Boston South Station is also available.
