Thomas Laighton on the Rails From Bill O’Connor

Hi Joey,

The Thomas Laighton was on the rails the other day and I was fortunate to be around to take this shot.  She’s owned by the Isles of Shoals Steamship Company out of Portsmouth, NH.  Apparently she is a replica of a victorian steamship and is named after the Thomas Laighton, a native of Portsmouth who was known as a politician, writer and businessman who left it all behind to live on the Isle of Shoals, first as the lighthouse keeper on White Island, then as a hotelier and land owner having bought up the other islands: Hog, Smuttynose and Cedar, and is remembered as the the ‘King’ of the Isles.

Enjoy!
