Track extension at Thomaston Shop Yard
More track expansion at Thomaston Shop Yard! During the weekend on September 25-26, museum volunteers added 330 feet of new storage track to the Thomaston Shop Yard. Using the 1954 Portland Terminal Company self-propelled crane to handle the rails, the crew extended Tracks 1, 2, and 3 each by 110 feet. This track extension will allow us to house even more equipment at our secure restoration facility, helping to protect our historic equipment from potential vandalism and making it easier to access for routine maintenance.
