I see. What will the new tank car be lettered to what historical purpose? Also will it be used as a water car for the steam engines?  :)

Does anybody know about the location of where the museum might go if they move to Gray, I want to find that location on Google map. Plus thanks James for the info, I just did not know that they were still interest on moving to Gray or not but now I know for certain.

When the new Storage Barn is complete, Will it handle a complete 3 or 4 car train and will it have 2, 3 or 4 bays of storage space for future equipment?

Fantastic work on the Mower car. Great job on it. One question is it self propelled or does it need to be pushed?

Where is the B&SR tank located now?

I looked up the Museum track on Google Map  I know I have a tendency of come up with a lot of ideas that are always equal to many things that would require lots of money to make these ideas become a reality but one of these two ideas I will tell you might sound like it wont be that much money as my second option will be. Here is my first idea. So far the museum track only runs Hancock St and I notice that their is enough room to extend the line a little bit south towards Maine State Pier St with what looks like enough space to build a run around track there. My second idea is the ridicules idea that what if the open swing bridge was restored and train were able to cross the bridge to downtown Portland on the other side. Does any railroad uses the tracks on that side of the river because I see another run around track behind Presumpscot St behind a place called "Richard P Waltz Plumbing & Heating" at what appears to be a gain silo or something. It would be a great place to turn the locomotive around there if this fare fetch idea could be possible with lots of money but is that standard gauge track still in revenue service?  ???

Museum Discussion / updates on the planned Car Shed?
« on: August 31, 2012, 04:21:34 PM »
I heard there was a project that was planned for a future car shed to store the museum's ever increasing number of rolling stock at Sheepscot and I see that a spur track has been constructed by the water tower on Goggle Map, has any work been done on that?

Oh I see. Are there plans in the future to build a replica of the station at Mile Post 9 when the reconstruction of the ROW to Head Tide is completed (In the future).
