If you’re cruising along US Route 5, following the Connecticut River on the eastern side of Vermont, you’ll pass by this Vermont oddity: the East Barnett Inwood Station. Apparently saved from demolition and relocated from Quincy, NH, this small depot sits among abandoned train cars and rail side lines, with trucks and a water tower on board. It is private property, but take a look at these images from the road.
Despite my best efforts at searching, I cannot dig up any information on this property. Who can shed some light?

Wow! Thanks for discovering this… now, I have to go there very soon. They have a working Heisler locomotive – that is railporn (pardon the expression). They are the coolest things going.
Thank you! I knew someone would be able to tell me about this.
BTW – the little railroad station is from Rumney, NH’s “Quincy” B&M line. Rumney had three stations. Not sure how this one made it to East Barnet, VT but that’s the information on the “Inwood” Station. You can see a picture of the station in its original location here: http://www.lightlink.com/sglap3/newhampshire/quincy3rdbw.jpg
That property is the property of the old East Barnet elementary school, and some nice people live there (at least as of 2014). Inwood is the old name of at least part of Barnet. It is still an official name for the locale represented by the 05821 Zip Code, which covers much of Barnet and part of Peacham. There is also an Inwood Lane very close to this Inwood Station.
