With our first real blast of wintery weather coming up this weekend, it might be a good time to look back at what winters were like in Westport’s earlier days.
Back in the days of the B & W Railway, the speediest route between two stops wasn’t always the train. Oftentimes, the train would get stuck somewhere along the way and nothing could help but some good, old-fashioned, shoveling. Bresee’s Cut was a particularly treacherous stretch of track where the train sometimes ended up stuck for quite some time, bringing the passengers to their destinations over 18 hours late! The following three photographs show the old B & W mired in the snow in Bresee’s Cut.
