It is with great sadness that we announce the resignation of Scott Mallett, our founder, from the Bartlett Roundhouse Preservation Society as of July 6, 2017, due to health reasons. Scott was the impetus behind the original formation of the Society when he found out the Bartlett Roundhouse was to be demolished.  Through his efforts, the Society was formed to lobby for restoration and repair of the building and the eventual transition of the facility into a railroad museum centering around the history of railroading in Bartlett and Crawford Notch.  To date, the building has received a replacement roof, some internal repairs, and is home to two historic pieces of railroad equipment, the old Maine Central outside braced boxcar that was once the tool car there, and a wooden Russell snow plow that originally was assigned to Portland Terminal Company in Maine.  The structure is also scheduled for some major repairs on the rear of stalls one and two, and a new driveway into the facility with the work scheduled to begin in mid-July.

His passion and enthusiasm have been a mainstay of our organization and he will be sorely missed.  Please join us in wishing Scott a fond fairwell and wish for equal success in whatever direction his fascination with railroading takes him.

We need Choo Choo's

Do you have trains kicking around your attic or basement? Not sure what to do with them? Consider donating them to the Bartlett Roundhouse Preservation Society. You can make it a tax deductible donation.

We are mainly looking for HO scale trains, but will take any scale.

We will sell them as fundraising items and the money will go to help restore the Roundhouse!

If you would like to donate please contact Pete at or Scotty at

Thank you very much!!
