Bolton Notch - Connecticut

I've visited Bolton Notch a few times - both by bike and foot - its a fascinating place. The site for New York, New Haven Hartford Railroad Valuation Maps is a great source for railroad details but I often find them very disorienting as north is seldom at the top

I've "re-oriented" the Bolton Notch Valuation map and included a few railroad photos (crediting their source) to help picture the spot back in its RR heyday...
