The new line track is shown with a 131 lb. rail laid date of 9-47.
he bridge abutment at the top of the grade west of Beaver Pond has a date of
938, only 9 years before the new line was put in.
he new line is shown on the chart, my question is, is there a 1927 track chart
n the archives that still shows the old route profile?
There were two articles published in the N&W Magazine
in 1946. One shows a sketch of the new line and the
old line, but there's no grade profile. From the article
in the November issue "While the purpose of the project
is simple -- eliminate the heavy westbound grade at
Beaver Pond Hill from 1.142 per cent to 0.52 per cent..."
