Dark face = telegraph station in 1923
A quick check by the Webmaster of the old railroad bed at every road crossing between Dover and Gonic on May 16, 2000 suggests that there are few if any obstructions of this long abandoned railroad bed.
The Webmaster did not check the Spaulding Turnpike crossing. However, if it blocks the old railroad bed, it might be feasible to construct a bypass trail alongside the Cocheco River as it passes under the Turnpike.
