Monson #4 is now on display!
« on: July 17, 2014, 03:04:40 AM »
Today a small group of us used a loaded #4 onto a trailer and trucked it across the parking lot. The decision was that the Edaville pilot should come off to make the move more convenient! It was then backed into the museum and put on a display track. Now visitors can get up close and personal with a piece of Maine's narrow gauge history!

Hi Hansel,

Saw the photos of fb, looks like a good display, next to the Rangeley.  Question: why is the ceiling be torn out of the museum?  The open rafters make the place look more like when the Portland Company was in there but will be much harder to heat.   ???

I don't know, I'm almost never in the museum building!

Where was the pic on Facebook? I didn't see it on the Maine Narrow Gauge page.
