Train Day with Maine Narrow Gauge Railroad Co. & Museum

May 7, 2016 @ 9:30am   Events, Member Events

Celebrate your love of trains by joining us for Train Day! The museum will be a hub of activity as we kick-off the start of our operating season. The Railbus, normally on display inside the museum, will be out on the tracks offering rides to passengers. The bus was built in 1925 on an REO truck frame for the Sandy River and Rangeley Lakes Railroad. It was used for passenger service as a substitute for steam locomotives in an effort to reduce operating costs when traffic on the line was light. A great opportunity to see a unique piece of equipment in action!

When: Saturday, May 7

Where: Maine Narrow Gauge Railroad Company & Museum 58 Fore Street
