While in Maine this weekend, I had the opportunity to go to this museum for the first time. What a great place and a wonderful staff. They have just about any type of transportation related stuff imaginable.
I was there to take some close up pictures of a Depot Hack. The subject 24 T was sitting very close to the cars on either side.I went to the front office and asked if I could go behind the sectioned off corded area to get the photos. The curator came back to the display with me and said if I would help him, we would push the T out in the middle of the isle where the light was better, and I could take all the pictures I wanted. What a great deal. He said he needed to leave for a few moments and asked that I wait for his return before trying to pushed the car back into the display. So I waited for him and got it back into position.
But if you are ever in the area, it is worth the $12 to look around. It was a good and fun 2 1/2 hours.

I was there years ago, they have a T that they take people rides in, The day I was there there was no driver for it. I told them I owned a few and the man in charge that day told me if I could fire it up I could be the driver so they made some money on me that day, it was fun!

We had a National MTFCA Tour in Maine about 10 or 12 years ago, and as part of that tour we went to The Owls Head Museum. It's a wonderful place.

As I remember they had a TT made into an open type bus with lots of sets in it. Joe, is that the one they let you drive? Just wondering.

The tour in Maine was great. It sure would be nice to have another National tour there.

Keith

When I get home over the Memorial day weekend, I will learn how to post pictures and submit some.
Memorial Day weekend, they are having an auction with several cars, including a 67 mustang, probably a Shelby? The folks there are just real down to earth.

Hi Pete - Thanks, but I suspect that it will interfere with the Old Car Festival on Sept. 11, 12 & 13th.

If it doesn't conflict with those dates, I would certainly appreciate any information you could send.

Please email it to me at: cgumbinger at att dot net

Thanks very much, Pete.

Keith
