This week's Sepia Saturday prompt shows a skier. I'm a great fan of skiing having skied most every area in northern New England. One thing I never did though was get there via a train.
Check out this vintage snow train poster circa 1939 printed by the Boston and Maine railroad. What you are looking at is Mount Washington and it's deep ravines in the background so this ski area pictured would be Wildcat Mountain.
Snow trains lasted until 1971 when the B&M went bankrupt. In 2008 the MBTA started weekend snow train service along a former B&M line from North Station in Boston to Mount Wachusett in Princeton, Massachusetts, it's only destination.
Strap on your skies and take a run down the mountain to Sepia Saturday to find many other fine posts. Just click here.
