Thank you for a great season!

2017 was a record setting season here at the museum, and we would like to extend our thanks to all of you who came to see us this year. We were especially pleased with the numbers of new members and volunteers who joined us this year in our efforts to preserve the heritage of narrow gauge railroading in Maine. It is only through the efforts of our members and volunteers that we are able to present you with a living history museum featuring the equipment, sights and sounds of narrow gauge railroading just as it was over 100 years ago. Thank you once again, and we look forward to seeing you back next year.

Franklin County’s Unique Narrow Gauge Railroad

This railroad, located in the mountainous region of Franklin County, was the longest of the five two-foot railways that once serviced the state. The fans of the SR&RL RR are literally worldwide as evidenced by our log book entries for visitors from the UK, Wales,
