Remarks & Notes 
Ghostly Remains, Part 1. With Halloween approaching, and with the warm tones of autumn quickly fading, a series of twilight photos of the abandoned train station at Gerrish Depot, New Hampshire, seemed appropriate. This depot was once served by the Northern Railroad, which was operated through most (if not all) of its existence by the Boston & Maine. The line barely saw service in the 1970s, but it briefly came back to life in the 1980s as a detour route. The Northern remained a separate company through its entire lifespan, and it thus was governed by a separate board of directors. The line was considered as a detour route during the B&M/Guilford labor strikes during the 1980s, but that plan never came to fruition. The line was again discussed during the 1990s by the New England Central Railroad as a possible secondary route for coal trains heading to a power plant in Bow, N.H. However, those talks also fell through. The Northern Railroad was never to see regular service again, and the tracks were removed. The line is now a bike path, and though a few stations have been restored, others, like Gerrish, rot away in silence. Photographed with a three-stop graduated neutral density filter.
