A Trio of Woodies!

ComradeAnon, look to the right, for the third Woody, with the front passenger door open. I think that's a Chevrolet. I believe the one on the right is a '38 Ford, but I'm not sure about the one on the left - it doesn't have suicide rear doors, so not a Ford.

Maybe a GM make?

Threefer

Actually, I think I spy a third woodie in front of the caboose, end-on with the door open.

Count 'em

At least 101 Woodies can be found here.

Enduring Depot

This station was not consumed in some unfortunate fire, or sacrificed in the name of urban renewal. It survives to this day, thanks in large part to a loving restoration of community leaders just in time for its centennial in 1974.

Snow ... snow ... snow

I keep expecting to see Bing Crosby, Rosemary Clooney, Danny Kaye, and Vera-Ellen coming around the corner from the tracks.

Ski Train

This is in the heart of North Conway and home to the ski train that ran from Boston. Most likely brought the skiers that were in the photo shown a couple of days ago. My parents went skiing at Mount Cranmore this way many times.

Pair of Woodies

Two of them in the same photo. A Shorpy first? Definitely a first for me.
