B&M Station - Fairlee, Vermont

A roadside view looking north.

The station as it looked in 2012

While following the B&M north out of WRJ I stopped in Fairlee to view the feed mill and station. I was in luck as the station was open and I could take a look around. Currently it is used as a flea market and only open on weekends and the occasional day.

The station is in excellent condition. The paint is fresh and I noted the brick footing on the rail side might have been redone recently. The interior looks as it did when in use by the railroad although full of antiques and stuff. If order board blades were mounted I would think the signal would still operate...well worth a stop if one is in the area...George Dutka

The two freight doors and operators bay are in this view.
Looking north towards the station during the fall of 2012. The order board blades are gone but all else still remains.
The interior of the operators bay. Note the desk and order board handles are still in place.
