Remarks & Notes 
Vermont Rail System is undertaking the rebirth of the old Montpelier & Wells River Railroad right-of-way after nearly 75 years of abandonment. Having seen the last revenue train in 1956, the line had been pulled up and reclaimed by nature, until late in 2019, when the wheels of progress moved forward and in an effort to eliminate two bridge crossings on structures that are ailing, the old M&WR ROW was reclaimed and cleared. Now rail will soon be laid and the VRS Granite District moved to the other side of the river, forever eliminating this view of the loaded granite train crossing the Winooski River inbound to Montpelier. The new ROW is visible above the house and what looks like a white trail along the river. Where the train is now will be pulled up and eliminated.
