A Steamy August in Boothbay
Well It has been hot. But steamy???
The Boothbay Railway Village Museum just outside of Boothbay Harbor has four of these old 2' steam locomotives. They were all built just after the turn of the last century and were originally used primarily on logging and short run operations in rural Maine. It's amazing that these old locomotives have been running for over 100 years. I'm sure the maintenance and upkeep keep the Museum volunteers busy year around.
This shot is one of the locomotives letting off a little steam.
