Help Repair Storm Damaged Train Car

On October 30, 2017 a major wind and rain storm hit Maine causing extensive damage and power outages across the state. Many historic railroad cars at the Maine Narrow Gauge Railroad Co. & Museum were damaged, with roofing torn apart and several sections of cars blown entirely off.  The damage was extensive and came just three weeks before our annual holiday train ride.

Insurance has covered part of the repairs but we’re asking for YOUR financial assistance to help cover the rest of this unforeseen expense. An additional $10,000 is needed to repair the extensive damage sustained to several cars including Combine #12 and Coach #19. Cars like Combine #12 are an important part of our daily operations and much needed as we begin our 2018 operating season.

Please consider a contribution to our historic preservation efforts! Every dollar helps and we would be grateful for any amount you can spare. The volunteers and staff of the Maine Narrow Gauge Railroad Co. & Museum, along with Hobo Joe, thank you!!
