Here's one of my old haunts in a little new snow: the Corner. These tracks run along the back of Bell Street. I had two different paper routes in this area. One was an afternoon route delivering the now defunct Portland Evening Express. I had it for about 5 years. I had about 75 stops and was constantly trying to set my 'personal best' for speed. With my bike, I was pretty good. I can't remember the exact time, but I do remember one afternoon, the planets were aligned, and I finished somewhere around 50 minutes. I could be speed crazy. When I started high school, I picked up another small route for about a year and a half. I delivered the Portland Press Herald in the morning to about 60 customers in the same general area around Morrill's Corner. The N.T. Fox Company used to have quite an expansive set of buildings in a large mill in the area of that chimney, now the site of the Portland Boxing Club. These tracks used to be for high speed freights heading back and forth to Canada, probably about 10 a day. Now, all you might see on them is a work engine and a couple of cars 'playing around'. Papers and choo choo trains: sights and sounds of days gone. All Aboard.
