Approaching Hampton heading north, you first encounter the route 1 overpass will angle norhteast under which the mainline runs.


 Scenic work is just beginning to reach this point, so photos from here north mostly lack any scenic elements other than clouds on blue sky backdrop.

Just to the north, we begin to encounter more country roads and small businesses as we approach the town.  

First we encounter Drakeside Road, where  spur to the east of the mainline will serve Hinton Hay, a local hay baling business that ships out salt hay as well as hay from local farms for use is Massachusetts and northern NH. Just to the north, by the next road, a spur extends from the Hampton siding on the west side of the mainline serving the local Grain and Feed supply.


 As we approach town, around the inside of the peninsula elbow, we have a short industry siding to the east of the mainline with a small oil dealer and a spur to the west of the siding with a n auto parts supplier that also may occasionally receive vehicles.

 Completing the turn around the elbow, we come to the Hampton town center with the depot, a small yard, and several industries.
