Two railcar wheel-based benches have been set alongside the trail in the Lake Todd area. Wheels from the Conway Scenic Railroad were media blasted by Jeremiah Johnson from Bear Blasting and painted by Fred Nystrom and Andrew Blagden. Seat brackets were welded by Jason Allen at Merrimack County Customs, who then delivered the bench frames to the site with an escort from the Bradford police department. CLSRT board members provided materials and did the final assembly June 5th.
The bench closest to the bridge will be dedicated as a memorial to Robert Saturley, whose friends and family contributed generous donations for this portion of the trail.
We expect the trail surface to be installed in this area over the next couple weeks.
