This abandoned railway shows up as a Boston & Maine railroad line as early as 1895. It connects to a still-active mainline at Woodsville; at Wing Road, the abandoned line splits, with a northern branch extending to Whitefield, and another branch heading eastwards to Twin Mountain. (Both branches are abandoned as well.)
It is not know when the portion of the line bewteen Woodsville and Littleton was abandoned; today it serves as the Ammonoosuc Rail Trail. The remainder of the line was operated by the New Hampshire and Vermont Railroad as late as 1999, but it too is now abandoned.
