Nantucket to Siasconset

The Nantucket Central Railroad

Point of Interest

GOOGLE MAPS no longer available: With apologies, I am unable to continue showing Google Maps. Google has forced my hand by increasing their map usage fee from nothing/free to OVER $300 A MONTH for the Abandoned Rails website! This is an expense that I simply cannot afford. Rest assured I am looking at available open source alternatives, so maps should be back online soon!

This line was built by Nantucket Central Railroad, a reorganization of the Nantucket Railroad, as an alternate route to the original right-of-way, which ran adjacent to Nantucket Island's south shore and therefore was susceptible to washouts along its length.

Built in 1895 (14 years after the original Nantucket Railroad's right-of-way was built), it was abandoned in 1917.
