“Forgotten Rails” is a documentary, with the hope of being a docu-series, dedicated to exploring the history and importance of railroads over the years. Whether abandoned, exempt or currently operating, Lawrence and his Siberian husky, Aries, explore forgotten rails to discover the history behind the lines, learning from local experts and entertaining viewers with their adventures and misadventures. They’ll show viewers how to find and access the rails and will participate in local activities and visit area attractions, inspiring viewers to do the same.
This past September, “Forgotten Rails” was featured at the eighth annual ITVFest.
Featured in the episode to be screened is the West River Railroad, a former line which ran from Brattleboro to South Londonderry, and the Connecticut Trolley Museum in East Windsor, CT.
