Behind it is this smaller building, still in use but not open to the public.

Driving around this town, you'll see reminders of the rail lines, like this discarded freight car that someone salvaged for use as an outbuilding on their property. On the left hand side of the photo you can see the angle of the roofline and what was the sliding door that was used when loading the car. It probably carried everything from livestock to grain over hundreds of trips.
I can remember in the 1980's they replaced the timbers in a section of track and offered the used ones free, if you could haul them away. They went quickly.
New Englanders are thrifty folk. Use it up, wear it out, make it do, or do without. Nothing goes to waste. A shed may look like it is filled with junk, but in that pile of "junk" is just the piece that you need to fix something, saving a trip to the hardware store on a rainy Sunday. More than once, I was helped by neighbors who had that perfect piece on that rainy Sunday....
