Postcard - "Rail Yard at Wolfeboro Falls"

Wolfeboro Historical Society Series No. 16 "The first train to arrive in Wolfeboro on opening day, August 19, 1872, was pulled by Eastern RR No. 66, a wood-burner built by Hinkley& Williams in 1871, here shown at Wolfeboro Falls."

The Crescent Lake Causeway - "WOLFEBORO RAILROAD COMPANY - Railroad Avenue, Wolfeboro, NH. Wolfeboro Railroad Locomotive #250 rolls off Crescent Lake Causeway heading westward into Wolfeboro. Featuring authentically restored steam locomotive and antique coaches. Heated in Winter. This 24 mile round trip is between Wolfeboro and Sanbornville. Fun for all ages. Photo by Mildred A. Beach"

The Wentworth station was unique in that it could not be reached by land. You'd tie your boat up at the little flagstop and take the train into town or be picked up by boat if arriving!
