Title: Old Boothbay brochure
Post by: Brendan Barry on August 24, 2017, 01:46:04 AM
My friend Dean found this brochure and bumper sticker while cleaning out his parent's house. Anybody have any idea on the date.

This looks familiar to me.  I was at Boothbay as a small child around 1960-61.  My guess late 50's early 60's.

Boothbay Railway was founded in 1964.  I believe the loop wasn't finished till 1965, and steam maybe the following year.

See ya

Didn't Boothbay celebrate its 50th anniversary last year? Or maybe it was the year before....so 1965 or 1966.
