Hobo Railroad

We attended the 22nd Annual White Mountains Trackcar Meet on the Hobo and Winnipesaukee Railroads this weekend.  The motorcar ran very well; the weather not so much. DSC_6513.JPG

Today’s P365 is a slight cheat, as Mrs. Mack505 took the picture.  I haven’t downloaded my camera yet.

Today we took the speeder on an excursion on the Pioneer Valley RR.  The PVRR runs on the track of the Holyoke & Westfield, which was built by the city of Holyoke and has been in continuous operation since 1870.  The RR claims to be the oldest continually operating shortline in the US.  It’s a great run, ending in and around the mills in downtown Holyoke.

Update:  Here’s my own shot for the day.

April 13 – I spent the afternoon cleaning and adjusting the carb on the speeder.  It’s a Zenith carb on an Onan CCKB motor, for those who know these things.  From this angle, I think it resembles Frank from the movie Cars.  My family doesn’t see it, though.  Maybe it was just too many Gumout fumes.
