Remarks & Notes 
Originating at Nashua, New Hampshire, 1129 is westbound, working the branch line between there and Bennington, The train is on the Main Street grade crossing in the small New Hampshire village of Lyndeborough. Here we find the standard White Church, General Store and Cannon on the Common. During this era the arrival of the daily freight was still one of the big happenings of the day. These rural freight trains were the main source of commerce for "every middlesex village and farm."
