B&MRRHS and the LOWELL FOLK FESTIVAL


The city of Lowell will host its annual Folk Festival on July 26. (night only), 27 and 28. On Saturday the 27th and Sunday the 28th, the B&MRRHS will have its wooden, truss rod B&M combine-coach available for visitors. It will be open from 10:00AM until 5:00PM both days. Located at the corner of Merrimac and Dutton, this authentic car has been beautifully restored and displays numerous photos, artifacts and furnishings of the B&M RR in Lowell and elsewhere. Items for sale include hats, shirts and outerwear, all marked B&M. An HO model railroad, depicting the canal era in Lowell, is also located in the “combine”. There is no charge and society members will be on-board and happy to discuss our railroad with all visitors.
