Weathervane Wednesday ~ Above the Train Station

I post another in a series of weather vane photographs every Wednesday.  This started with images of weathervanes from the Londonderry, New Hampshire area, but now I've found interesting weather vanes all across New England and across the globe.  Sometimes my weather vanes are whimsical, or historical, but all are interesting.  Often my readers tip me off to some very unique or unusual weathervanes, too!  If you know a great weather vane near you, let me know if you'd like to have it featured on this blog.

Today's weather vane was photographed in New Hampshire.

Do you know the location of weathervane post #382?  Scroll down to find the answer.

This feathered arrow weathervane can be seen above the train station at Clark's Trading Post in Lincoln, New Hampshire.  The simple arrow is "gussied up" with a fancy eagle finial, and scroll work supporting the cardinal points.  This weathervane can be seen from almost anywhere in the little amusement park, and by drivers cruising along U.S. Route 3 heading up to the White Mountains.

The train station here loads visitors onto the Climax steam locomotive for a 30 minute, 2.5 mile scenic loop along the Pemigewasset River and over a covered bridge.  This is the train that children remember as the train chugs into the territory of the infamous "Wolfman".  Generations of children have enjoyed ( or perhaps were terrorized by) this train ride.

The "Wolfman" chased our train!
