Ed, thanks for sharing this story. More importantly, thanks to everyone for the hard work you all do in Alna. It had been a few years since I visited the museum but the progress that has been made is just staggering.

For those who are curious, here's a link to an album with a few more views from Dec. 29: https://www.flickr.com/photos/justinfranz/albums/72157675099842267

Thanks Justin for publicizing your visit, kind words, and the continued exposure you bring to our operation.

(Now we just have to convince that Editor of yours to make good on his plan to finally visit the slim gauges of Maine.)

Actually Ed, he did visit. Or maybe it was one of the other editors. But either way someone was up last April for our scrapping the railroad day.

No, the editor of another national railfan and railroad magazine was present for the April 2018 charter. The editor of THE magazine of railroading has yet to see a Maine two-footer in person.
