Museum Milestones for January, February, March 2020
Car Barn Extension: The extension generally was dormant due to life events, but work on it resumed in March. The walls were framed for windows.
Grand Reunion Photo Events: Two “Grand Reunion” photo events were held, in January and February, bringing together all 5 surviving Maine two-foot gauge locomotives for the first time. Photographers from all of the US (and a few overseas) came and saw SR&RL, Monson, B&SR and WW&F trains, as well as the 13-car doubleheaded “mega train”. The Collaboration equipment was put to good use.
Two Feet to Tidewater! A book long out of print, the third edition of Two Feet to Tidewater by Register and Jones was released. Please visit the giftshop page for your copy.
Coronavirus: As the Coronavirus pandemic hit the US, work at the Museum slowed to a crawl. Many volunteers are waiting at home for it to all end.
