Silver Lake Railroad, NH

Restored Silver Lake, railroad station

Restored Engine


Riley Bros Diner Lyon MA


Bob's GPS took us on a backroad, Village Road, Route 113, Silver Lake. What a pleasant surprise, we found a restored railroad station and a display of railroad cars. This station was the former Madison stop for the Boston and Maine Railroad from the late 1800s until the line's abandonment in 1972.
The station has been restored over the period from 2002-2007, and much of its original features are intact. Silver Lake Railroad is open July through Fall offering a 40 minutes ride traveling through the Chain of Ponds area, passing lily ponds, beaver ponds, scenic valley and mountains.
In the near future a restored 1941 Sterling Riley Bros Diner will open serving ice cream.
