Maine Central RR Gallery
Crawford Notch

Crawford Notch is located in the heart of New Hampshire's White Mountains along Maine Central's Mountain Division. Eighty-five miles from Portland, ME, the steep ascent culminates at the Notch where heavy tonnage is a challenge under any circumstance. On this particular day in the early 1980s, four General Electric U18B locomotives team up to move another trainload of merchandise up to the summit.

Raising the Ball

The Maine Central and the Boston and Maine crossed at a single diamond at Whitfield, NH. The diamond was protected with an ancient ball signal system. One high ball gives the B&M rights to the crossing and two high balls gives the track to the Maine Central. In this late 1970s scene, MEC 401 and three identical U18Bs are awarded the diamond as a B&M local patiently waits. Today the tracks through Whitfield are silent, but the ball signals and diamond remain.

Mountain Division Finale

The Fall of 1978 finds a quartet of Maine Central GP-38's on the point of RY-2 passing the Queen Anne style depot at Crawfords, NH. A single track car waits in the siding for RY-2 to clear. Crawford Notch can be seen in the distance and Elephant Rock is situated just above the second locomotive. The last Maine Central train ran on the Mountain Division in 1982 about the same time the Maine Central was absorbed into the Guilford Transportation System.
