Top Ten of 2017. With 2017 in the books, here's a look back at my Top 10 favorite shots from the past year. 9. Labor Day weekend 2017 was spent in the White Mountains of New Hampshire, after Conway Scenic announced that part of their annual Railfans' Weekend would include a trip to the restored ball signal in Whitefield, NH. This would be the first passenger train at this location since May 1982. After the passengers were unloaded and a runby performed in a downpour, everyone is back on board and the "Red Ball Special" is now on its way back to North Conway, with former Maine Central GP38 252 bringing up the rear. The train is on former Boston & Maine trackage here, while the ex-MEC crosses behind the unique signal.
