Massachusetts' Two Footers / New Car

Since this involved Boothbay I will put it here, if the mods want to move that's fine. I went to Edaville today and while talking with one of the workers was told that Boothbay had built a new excursion car for them. It was not in service yet do not having its paint finished however if you rode the train you could see it outside the machine shop. So I did and here is a pic of the new car that was built in Boothbay.

On Edaville's Facebook page, they said that steam would be running during Carnival Day this Sunday. No more information at this time.

Edaville has added a new addition to the train ride, no it's not a longer loop  :(, however it is something that Edaville never had before.. a tunnel

If someone were to chase the train at the road crossings, could a hyundai Elantra handle the roads to them even though the car doesn't have 4 wheel drive?

Edaville Restoring Old Railway in Time for 2013 Polar Express Train Ride
Longer Route Will Whisk Passengers to a Remote "North Pole" in Carver, MA
Share on TwitterShare on FacebookShare on Google+Share on LinkedInEmail a friend

"We wanted to recreate the magic of the story as much as possible. The extended track and new North Pole location will achieve that."
Carver, MA (PRWEB) July 23, 2013

It’s only a couple of miles of track, but that’s all the rail needed to create the illusion of a far-off North Pole. To achieve that particular effect for the 2013 Polar Express, Edaville has begun the daunting task of restoring part of the original railway laid in 1947. It will debut for service on November 22, the first of 19 Polar Express dates during Edaville’s holiday season this year.
“We wanted to recreate the magic of the story as much as possible – and a big part of that is being whisked off by train through the unknown to arrive at The North Pole,” explained owner Jon Delli Priscoli. “There’s no chance these kids will know the route they’re on and they won’t be able to see the North Pole until they get there, adding mystery to the ride until finally their anticipated destination appears out of the darkness like a dream.”
Those in the Edaville know will remember that the original railway was shortened in 2005, changing the trip length from forty minutes to twenty to accommodate families with small children. Since then, nature has quickly been reclaiming much of the railway which winds through forest and along a beautiful and remote rural reservoir.
The Polar Express will leave the Edaville depot, switch tracks at the Atwood whistle stop and continue on to the North Pole. There the train will stop and Santa will climb on board, greet the children and give each a golden bell, the first gift of Christmas. Costumed staff will serve hot chocolate and cookies while pajama-clad guests enjoy a live reading and carols – all on an authentic steam train, just like in the story.
The Polar Express at Edaville will run three trains each night on November 22-24 and 27 and December 1, 5-6, 8, 12-13, 15, 18-20, 22-24, and 26-28. Train times are 4:30, 5:30 and 6:30 pm on weekends and 5:30, 6:30 and 7:30 pm on weekdays. The cost is $34 for all ages 2 and up and includes the Polar Express experience as well as all rides and attractions at Edaville’s Christmas Festival of Lights.
Inspired by Chris Van Allsburg’s classic children’s story, The Polar Express is set to the sounds of the soundtrack from the Warner Bros. movie starring Tom Hanks. Details and tickets for The Polar Express and all Edaville events can be found at, or by calling 508-866-8190.

Museum Discussion / Victorian Christmas

I am tying to get to Victorian Christmas this year. I've always wanted to go. But I just have one question. Is the town decorated as well?

Museum Discussion / Prints
« on: July 31, 2010, 08:42:37 PM »
Hi guys, I don't post on here very often but I have a question that maybe you guys can help me with. I belong the Heritage Committee of my city of East Providence, RI. Every year we put on a heritage festival. This year was our 30th anniversary and we decided to do something special to commemorate it. I thought of doing a panoramic print of the whole festival. My question is how well do the prints that the museum sells do? Are they a big money maker or do you barely make enough to cover the costs of printing them. Any and all input would be greatly appreciated.

Thank You,
Mark Spremulli

Museum Discussion / Surrounding Area Christmas Events?
« on: December 07, 2009, 01:57:54 PM »
My friend and I are planning a getaway next December. I really want to do the Victorian Christmas train. Does the town of Wiscasset get decorated and/or are there any events that are fun.

I only ask because I've searched the web and nothing seems to be coming up.

Thank you
Mark Spremulli
