The Grand Trunk and Southern New England

Huge piles of fill, deep rock cuts, and towering abutments are all that remains of the never-completed Southern New England Railroad (SNE).
The line was owned by Grand Trunk Railroad (GTR). a Canadian company, and stretched from Palmer, Massachusetts to Providence, Rhode Island. This 3.5-mile walking trail is only a small portion of the 85-mile route.
