We slept in Lewiston, Maine with the intention of catching St. Lawrence and Atlantic's only daytime train we could be sure existed the next morning. We caught it and an MEC train at Danville Junction, and pondered how to shoot at the Lewiston Junction locomotive facility. Once we caught the SLR train we headed to eastern New Hampshire to see if we could catch the New Hampshire North Coast's gravel train, which we did - at Sanbornville.

SLR #513 pushes a cut of boxcars back and pulls forward, prompting a trucker to shout down to me "they just keep going back and forth - are they on drugs?" on the other side of the tracks.
