Conway Branch Bridge Inspection—April 2022

The other day, I accompanied Wayne Duffett of TEC Associates on his annual inspection of the bridges on Conway Scenic’s Conway Branch.

This railroad was built in the early 1870s, by Boston & Maine constituent railroad, the Portsmouth, Great Falls & Conway. The last B&M train operated over the branch in 1972, nearly 50 years ago.

The bridges on the line have long and varied histories.

I made several hundred photographs as Wayne tapped, rapped, poked, measured and visually inspected each and every span. 

The Conway Branch has wooden, stone, iron, steel and conctrete bridges.

I learn a lot when scrutinizing a railroad at this level.

All the photos were exposed using my Nikon Z6.
