Brattleboro & Whitehall Railroad
Built in 1880 this was planned to be a railroad running from Brattleboro VT to Whitehall NY. only the first 36 miles from Brattleboro to South Londonberry VT however, and was completed in a narrow gauge. The trackage traversed a rough terrain, which was prone to derailments and washouts, earning the railroad the moniker "the 36 miles of trouble".
In 1905 the railroad was converted to standard gauge and was reorganized as the West River Railroad.
