The Boston & Maine Railroad

Here you will find material of general interest to B&M historians and modelers, with a special emphasis on the B&M's Suncook Loop and NH Division mainline at Hooksett, NH.  While my primary interest is the Suncook Valley Railroad, my research and modeling efforts extend to cover these areas as well.  In time, I will also begin to post information and articles written by my late friend, Tim Gilbert.  Much of the information you find here should be considered a work in process.  If you have additional information or photos or experiences of relevance to the subject matter you find here, please share it, no matter how small.
