Train Ride into Summer

It is train day today.  These pictures are from our Augusta, Maine trip in September.  The brick building is in Barre, Vermont.  Barre Gray granite has the desirable characteristics of fine grain, even texture and weather resistance. It is used for outdoor art sculptures. I assume that is also a 'code phrase' for cemetery headstones. Our train of the day shows the Sandy River and Rangeley Lakes train going in reverse in its forest setting.

I  can see in these pictures the dominance of the green of the forest in September.   Now just into November, the leaves are changing colour and falling so the green canopy has almost disappeared.  It will be replaced by the stark structural pattern of branches as we move closer and closer to winter.
