Traveling Directions For Visitors

Our entire plant is open to those interested enough to come to see us.

Springfield, Vermont, the home of the Flat Turret Lathe, is located near the Connecticut River just north of Bellows Falls.

It is reached by a modern freight and passenger electric railway which connects with the Connecticut River Division of the Boston & Maine Railroad at Charlestown, New Hampshire.

The electric railway cars meet all trains, including the midnight, and take the travelers directly to the office and works of the Jones & Lamson Machine Company, which is located on the electric line, three minutes walk from the terminus.

The Adnabrown Hotel, at the end of the railway, is of course ready to receive guests at any hour.

Travelers from Boston come via the Fitch-burg Division of Boston & Maine Railroad through to Bellows Falls, at which junction they change cars to the Connecticut River Division for an eight-mile ride north to Charlestown, where an electric car will be found awaiting the train.

Visitors from New York come to Springfield, Mass., over the New Haven Road, and change there to the Connecticut River trains, which run north through the beautiful Connecticut Valley to Charlestown, New Hampshire. In the summer season White Mountain trains run without change from New York through Charlestown.

The trip takes six to eight hours from New York and from four to four and one-half hours from Boston.

Travelers from the West, if coming via the New York Central Railroad, generally continue to Springfield, Mass., over the Boston & Albany Division, or take the Fitchburg Railroad through the Hoosick Tunnel to Greenfield, Mass., the junction with the Connecticut River Railroad.
