Northbound <i>Montrealer</i> at Northfield Falls, Vt.
Northfield Falls, Vt. is between the Amtrak station stops at Randolph and Montpelier. This photo is taken from the Station Bridge that carries Cox Brook Road across the Dog River; built c. 1872, it features a 138 foot long Town Lattice truss. Past the railroad tracks in the distance is the Lower Covered Bridge, which dates to the same period. This 55 foot long queenpost truss structure caries the road over its namesake--Cox Brook. This is the only location where one historic covered bridge in Vermont can be seen from another. The overnight Montrealer was replaced on April 1, 1995 with the daytime Vermonter, which ends its northbound journey at St. Albans. The Vermonter is financed primarily through funds made available by the Vermont Agency of Transportation. Photographer: Unknown for Amtrak.
