Union Station, Wakefield,NH USA

Another nicely restored train station can be found in Wakefield,NH about 2 hours north of Boston, MA. The town heritage commission has opened a museum, restored a few old buildings, and recently restored a water tower. The also feature a beautiful miniature railroad of the town at the turn of the century.

Very interesting video Rick. The railways of the USA use the same couplings as we used on the Rhodesian Railways.

The ones used on the Rhodesian Railways were made in the UK at first, but later some were made in South Africa.
