Dover to Portsmouth

The Portsmouth and Dover Railroad

I do not have any information on this abandoned route. If you know anything about this route, please feel free to leave a comment below.

Thank you!

I have personally walked all abandoned rail in the seacoast area. This includes railroad and trolley. If you ever wanted to take a walk, just let me know.

I believe the Spaulding Turnpike (at least the Dover Point end) may have been constucted on this abandoned railbed. (It was constructed on an abandoned railbed - I'm not sure it was the Portsmouth and Dover railbed.)

Some of Rt. 16 was built on the old P&D ROW just south of Exit 7, beyond Sawyer Mills. From there, it breaks off again, and Spur Rd. was built on the ROW (a milepost marker is still present along that stretch). The ROW was obliterated south of the Dover tolls. It can be seen again partially jutting out into Great Bay across from Hilton Park, where the Newington Depot is (Bloody Point Rd.)

North of Sawyer Mill in Dover, you can still see the crossing and telltale where it crossed Rt. 108 by the Rt. 16 overpass, by the Shell station. From there, it becomes the Dover Community Trail.
