Railroads in Maine Between 1961-1973

The railroads to be featured will be the Boston & Maine, Canadian Pacific, Belfast & Moosehead Lake, Maine Central, and Bangor & Aroostock. This power point program will emphasize the human element of the railroad industry by way of Ben's narration and stories and the photographs he took during those twelve years. You will see photographs of regular train operation, railfan trips, derailments, and railroad maintenance.
