Steam in the Snow - Sawyer River. The Conway Scenic Railroad's 1921-vintage Canadian National Switcher runs eastbound across the Sawyer River with the Mass Bay Railroad Enthusiast's annual "Steam In The Snow" excursion. This train travels the route of the old Maine Central Railroad's Mountain Division, stopping at various sites for photo run-bys to the delight of both the passengers and the local populace. Unlike most years, the weather for the 2011 event was actually quite balmy, with temperatures in the low 40s, generally cloudy skies and not much snow cover. Fortunately, right here by the chilly Sawyer river, there was not only a nice layer of snow and ice remaining, but a timely break in the overcast, just as the train approached!
