I need to know the exact years in which:

1. Full passenger (not mixed train) service was ended.
2. Railbus #5 was built.
3. Locomotives #20 and #22 were retired.
4. Combination #14 recieved her new roof.

Why do I need this? I intend to build a SR&RL model railroad someday, and I need to know this for it.

Or even worse than walking, crawling!  :D

Looks great. I might be going there when Prince is back in steam. Does the train Oscillate like our two-footers? I know I've firsthand experienced what Linwood Moody was talking about in his book.

Is the WP&YRR going to open all the way to Whitehorse? That would be great.

Thanks! :D Those photos are good enough for now,  ;D I will be taking some when I visit the MNG in Spring.

Zak, he means inside the museum building, on display. Tight quarters.
It is still on the property, only out in the enginehouse, or what was left of it before this past weekend.

Thats what I meant.... I just wanted to be able to see it when I go there...

I am getting that book sometimes, but until then, could someone who owns it just scan me the photos?

Thanks, but I don't live in Lewiston or Auburn  :'(. I will try to email them for a scanned version of the caboose   ::)

Aww man.. >:( B&SR #8 is one of my favorites! Couldn't they find somewhere to put her?

I went to the MNG this summer, too bad I didn't get a photo of it then...

I think if we had a time machine we'd all go back and preserve everything we could.

I said #18, #17, and #9 because if I had a time machine, I probably wouldn't be able to buy everything. Besides, those three would be really practical for a tourist railroad, (As great as #10 and #23 were, they're just too heavy for a upstart tourist line). Believe me, I'd love to buy all of them if I could.

I'm trying to find them in an online bookstore. I've read the Maine Two-Footers before, but I can't seem to be able to buy a copy thats under $80! I'll just have to get it from the library.

If I had a time machine, I'd go back in time and buy #18, #17, and #9.

I'm doing a research project on the Maine 2 Ft. gauge lines, and I need good photos of #21 and #9, and I need them to be after they were fitted with electric headlights.

I really need a photo of the B&SR caboose for a modeling project I'm doing.
