St. Johnsbury & Lamoille County [Vermont Northern]
June 3, 1976

Another view of the St. Johnsbury & Lamoille County, somewhere between St. Johnsbury and Danville, Vermont. At its height the SJ&LC ran from a Maine Central connection at St. Johnsbury to the Central Vermont near Swanton.

By 1976 the SJ&LC had been purchased by the state of Vermont and turned over to Morrison-Knudsen for operation as the Vermont Northern until it was taken over by local shippers in 1978 under the name Lamoille Valley Railroad. Today it is a recreational trail called the Lamoille Valley Rail Trail.
