Have you visited a modellers layout and watched the train loop around the layout, then at some point one track climbs a steep grade and crosses over the other track...well that is exactly what happens with the Central Vermont at Millers Fall.
I stopped by Millers Falls shorty after visiting East Deerfield yard. Once I took a look around town...there is not much to see in regards to the railways, I went south out of town on route 63 to take a look at the location were the two railroads cross each other. I stopped about a quarter mile north of the bridge that carries the CV over route 63. There is a clearing that you can drive up to the B&M track. Since it was March it was easy to walk the bank to the crossing location. I think it might be much more difficult to do once the foliage is out. The photos seen here are from that visit. I did hang around for over half an hour since I could hear something that resembled a train switching but nothing arrived before I left. East Deerfield is not that far away and maybe the sounds from the yard echo through the hills. If you are visiting East Deerfield this location is maybe a 15 minute drive away and well worth a visit...maybe you will be lucky and catch a train...George Dutka.
