All aboard!

Happy Independence Day!

If you are planning on heading down to the Eastern Promenade early to get a good spot for the fireworks, I suggest that you first make your way down the the Maine Narrow Gauge Railroad and catch their 6:30 pm train. Rides are free (or by donation).

As an added bonus, Eternal Otter Records will be presenting a folk music show right on the train as it chugs on down to the promenade. This show will feature Jesse Pilgrim and Johnny Fountain trading old standards, children's songs, toe-tappers, and maybe cracking a few jokes.

This is also a little warm-up for a much larger train concert that we hope to put on sometime in September, and that will also include Over A Cardboard Sea & Samuel James.

The Maine Narrow Gauge Railroad Co. & Museum is an indoor-outdoor museum interpreting Maine’s industrial history and technology primarily through its working two-foot gauge railroad. The Museum is open from 10am to 4 pm every day. Trains run on the hour from 11am to 4 pm. This weekend, the MNGRR will be running steam Friday, Saturday and Sunday.
