The Rutland Railroad of Vermont ceased its corporate existence in 1963, done in by the changing economic terrain of its New England home and the intransigence of its operating unions. But most of its lines survived under different owners. Among them was the Green Mountain Railroad which picked up the line between Bellows Falls and Rutland VT. Some 12 years after the demise of the Rutland we see Steamtown USA CP 1246 crossing a bridge that still bears the name of the predecessor road on its way back from Rutland to Steamtown's home base near Bellows Falls.
Today the line survives as part of the Vermont Rail System group of shortlines, but Steamtown and its locomotives have departed.
