Had a wonderful late season trip. It was a bit past peak foliage but we went to experience a true train ride without the large crowds.

Vintage train trips: White River Junction vs Bellows Falls (2 Replies)
Any recommendations please whether to take the White River Junction/White River Flyer ride to Thetford or the Bellows Falls/Green Mountain Flyer ride to Chester. Either more scenic than the other or other comments please? I understand which days of the week they run during fall foliage and that may be a deciding factor depending on the day we are in the area.
