Good pictures!Lots of detail pictures for modelers.Looking at photos of the piers and abutments I see concrete extensions to the granite work. Looks like the entire bridge was relatively recently raised about two feet. Probably after the state acquired it from the B&M RR.Can anyone confirm or refute ?
You might consider adding the PVRR- Pemigewasset Valley Rail Road (aka pumkin vine RR) as a user. Pop grew up on Winter St in Plymouth, next door to section boss Rob Woodard. I haven't heard the stories in a while, so I'm fuzzy on where the PVRR ran, but I'm fair certain it partnered with B&M somehow. I think they must have run on the line past Livermore Falls & over the buttermilk rapids this bridge spans.
