Looks like it has been 10-15 years since the last train past there. I think you are safe Larry.

I'm quite surprised that they haven't pulled up rails to re-cycle the steel & the ties to re-cycle for landspacing purposes. And then convert it to a 'Rail Trail' for Hiking, Biking, Horses or ATV's.

This was in center of Penacook Village, Part of Concord, NH. It's kind of industrial slum area. ( My definition.) Close to Merrimack river, and just off main road. Below is pix of a building near by. I was tooting around back streets, exploring for photo op's.
I had just come by a large dairy farm, on West side of the Merrimack river. After this photo, I went to one of my favorite places to munch on lunch. ( Directly opposite of that farm. Photo below.

View of farm ( On West side of river.)



Views of my lunch spot. ( Directly opposite farm on other side of river.)

Looking West, at farm.



Looking South



My lunch (on-the-road)



Old building near abandoned tracks


The tracks just North of Penacook village have been converted to rec. trails. ( No motorized vehicles !)
Those ties are so rotted, they are not even fit for land fill.

Our first real good riding day this spring. In high 60's all day. Yaa !
