Edaville RR

The Q and I visited the Edaville RR operation in June of 1966. No trains were running that day, so our photos were mainly of railroads items on display.

Here's the historic B&M Flying Yankee. In 1993 it was moved to Glen NH where a group headed by Storyland operator Bob Morrell planned to restore it. In 1997 it was moved to the Claremont & Concord's shops for Phase 1 work. In 2005 it was moved to the Hobo Railroad in Lincoln NH where work continues.

Visit the Flying Yankee website for more information.

In 1993 most of the Edaville's equipment was sold, most of it to the new Maine Narrow Gauge Museum in Portland. In September of 1993 a convoy of historic trucks hauled the locomotives and rolling stock northward.
