Back in the day when I got my black seal, locomotive and stationary boiler operators classes and licenses were different.  They were still classified by pressure / HP but there were a bunch things the loco guys had to know and do that the stationary did not have.  I don't know what the current regulations require in Maine but I would think that anyone who is already certified to fire on the RR would be also qualified for stationary.
When I got my New Jersey Blue Seal License it had a special endorsement for locomotives. I believe now NJ classifies it as a “portable” boiler license.

In Maine the High Pressure Boiler Operator's license is good for both stationary and mobile.  The boiler program is actually geared toward stationary (power plant) boilers and people that have 40-hour week jobs on them.  I think we volunteer railroads have an understanding with the State regarding the time it takes for us to accumulate hours for our licenses.
