Come and help us restore a historic two-foot narrow gauge railroad. There are plenty of opportunities for all ages and abilities. Learn railroad operations from the early 1900's on our steam locomotive hauled trains. Projects include basic maintenance; building track; machine work; carpentry; construction; care for our buildings, grounds, and right-of-way; office work; cooking and cleaning; and much more. We are an all-volunteer organization preserving this unique aspect of Maine's (and US) history. Check our web site and/discussion forum for updates on planned projects and activities. Please stop in on any Saturday and introduce yourself at the station. We'll be glad to have you and you'll be glad you came.
If heavy machining is something you've wanted to try - do we have an opportunity for you! We're assisting in the construction of TWO new steam locomotive boilers over the next several years. We'll be riveting, welding, and shaping using equipment and techniques from a bygone era. For details on the project, see: http://www.fundrazr.com/21campaign
