In another topic I described a Sandy River hat badge that I bought in Farmington, Maine back in the late 70s early 80s. I also bought a Sandy River and Rangeley Lakes whistle at the same time. See attached pictures. Do you think it's from the SR&RL? Bob Werner thought it was from #15.

Hello, I am new to this forum and look forward to sharing with all of you.

I started a topic on the Narrow Gauge Discussion Forum and it was suggested that I also post it here.

Back in the late 70s early 80s my wife and I were following the route of the Sandy River and Rangeley Lakes in Maine. In Farmington we met an antique dealer who sold me a hat badge that says "SRRR Baggageman." See attached picture. I am guessing that it is from the Sandy River RailRoad. Has anyone seen anything like it before. In all of my Maine two foot books I haven't see any SRRR hat badges. If I wanted to donate it to a museum which one would want it and treat it properly, i.e. put it on proper display and not sell it off?

He also sold me a single chime whistle supposedly off one of the SRRL engines. It isn't marked so there's no proof. I showed it to Bob Werner years ago and he thought it was from #15. I want to eventually donate it too unless one of my sons wants it. They're not "train nuts" like me!

Any help is greatly appreciated!
