It was a beautiful day on Saturday and I finally had time to go for a bike ride replete with railroad history exploration. The Cheney Rail Trail in Manchester was a short privately-owned spur to the Cheney Silk Factory complex (Historical detail below)
I started from the site of the old Manchester Trail Station - see previous posting.
Once on the trail, on the right are the railroad tracks and remnants of a trestle for the second set of tracks.

|There were two tracks here|
|The official start was a block south of where I started!|
