Hey Ashton, not trying to hijack your post but I replied to another one of your posts about your families business. You said you found some history on the business in some old trade journals. Where did you find the journals? A library perhaps? I would like to know as I am trying to research and engine.

I believe that this was originally the PGF&N Portsmouth, Great Falls and Northern acquired by Boston and Maine and became the B&M mountain division. Officially abandoned in the 1970's

Google books is my main source for old adverts and articles. It's fantastic. Good luck with your search!

Thanks for those links. It looks like the turntable was already abandoned by then except for use as a length of siding.

The Wakefield Historical society has done a great job in restoring the turntable and other buildings in the area.
