Title: Images from Monson #4's last operating day
Post by: Kevin Madore on April 14, 2014, 11:00:12 PM
Folks,

On 3/29/14, I had the privilege of attending the Maine Narrow Gauge Railroad Company & Museum's farewell event for Monson Locomotive #4.   I remember being up in Portland back in 2002 when the fire was lit for the first time since she came up from Edaville, so I guess it was fitting that I make it up there for the last day.   The MNGRR put on a nice event, and we darn near got it all in before the rains came that evening.  Even in the rain, we got a decent shot or two.   Here is a link to a small album of images that I have posted on RailPictures.net:

Looking forward to seeing #7 back on the rails up there, hopefully in the next year or so.

/Kevin

Great photos! My favorites are the night shot and the "pint-size train for a pint-size fan."
