President Dave Buczkowski was honored and humbled to accept this Significant Achievement Award from the Heritage Rail Alliance tonight on behalf of the volunteers and contributors that made the Mountain Extension to Trout Brook Preserve come to fruition.

(A corrected version of the award will be provided at a later date.)

Where is Trout Lake? I looked on some Maine maps but didn't find it.

Trout Lake is in my little hometown of Stoneham, Maine.. What a great accomplishment, going where a railroad has never been...just kidding of course, except for the Lake. It is real..

There was a very famous location known as Trout Lake on the long ago Rio Grande Southern in Colorado. It was between Ophir and Lizard Head. I'll bet that's where the HRA folks tripped up.
