This is the Vermont Railway. The trains haul freight and passengers and have charter and scheduled tourist trains. The Vermont Railway site says the "Vermont Rail System is an affiliation of four Vermont-based shortlines: the Vermont Railway, the Green Mountain Railroad, the Clarendon and Pittsford Railroad, and the Washington County Railroad."
The train runs through Barton at least once a day. Wingnut and I see it when we are at the Crystal Lake beach (either at the state park or at the town park). The conductor always waves at the people at the beach and at the crossings.
The Vermont Railway has a lot of excursion rides that I have always wanted to go on (there are also wedding and birthday excursion trains). This next year I'm going to take an excursion. No one except Wingnut will go with me, so it's time to go alone and create some good memories and photographs even when he is not here. I love excursion train rides (but I do not like Amtrak rides at all).
