On Saturday, July 1 the Boothbay Railway Village will host a meet of antique engines and other early mechanical devises in partnership with the Maine Antique Power Association (MAPA). Engine buffs and lovers of all things mechanical will enjoy this opportunity to see “one lungers” and other early gasoline, diesel and steam engines operate and to learn about them first-hand from their passionate owners.
Invitations have also been extended to members of the Antique Outboard Motor Club’s Pine Tree Chapter to participate. The Museum’s engine exhibit has undergone extensive renovations to accommodate a gift of nearly 300 vintage outboard motors from a private collection and the new exhibit will open on May 27, 2017.
Admission is free for Museum Members and included with Museum Admission for non-members.
