Monson #4 Guest Engineer Program Photos
« on: January 01, 2015, 02:24:30 PM »

On Saturday, December 27th, I was very fortunate to be able to visit Portland, to observe the Guest Engineer Program on Monson #4's second-to-last day in operation.   For several days, the weather people had been predicting a nice day for Saturday, and with the Guest Engineer operations kicking off around 9AM, the planets were all aligned for some rare opportunities to catch the Maine Narrow Gauge Railroad Company's operations in great light.   I spent the entire day up there, enjoying the company of some great folks, and my only regret was that I didn't have a golf cart or some other fast means of getting around, or I might have gotten even more great shots than I did.

After scanning the take from the day, I've posted 16 frames in a Flickr Album that pretty much capture what happened that day.

Let's all hope that the funds can be raised for a new boiler for this engine, and that we will see her steaming again in the not-too-distant future.

Thanks to the MNGRR Folks for their great hospitality!
