We will be at Westbrook Train Show, April 06, Westbrook Community Center. A huge number of old railroad poster style calendars for sale, signed and numbered prints of the New Haven, going way back into the 40's in some cases. Some great RR books and memorabilia, including lots of early Amtrak material. All this courtesy of the the family of the late Sam Vaughan. Everything priced to sell or you make a reasonable offer. This is stuff you will not find again in this good condition, and at these prices. One original NYC print of "The Centuries Pass at Night" in original frame.

New England Steam tee shirts and hats. Please come out and support the ongoing restoration of Maine Central 470!

Thank you, everyone who attended the Southern Maine train show in Westbrook! You got some great bargains and supported the restoration of former Maine Central 470. Our next major event is "Touch A Train", on June 22nd, 2019. This is a family event and not a regular train show. Children and their elders can sit in the locomotives and cars, and much more. You will be able to look over the restoration which is underway indoors. We hope to see you there!

Touch A Train will be held at Washington Junction yard, June 22nd, 2019. The address is 8 Railroad Siding Road, Hancock, Maine. This is 5 miles north of the intersection of Main Street Ellsworth and Route 1A. This year combines the 135th anniversary of the first passenger train on the old Calais Branch, the 10th anniversary of the Downeast Scenic Railroad, and the start of the third year of restoration of Maine Central steam locomotive #470. Caboose-hop rides, a hot riveting demonstration, model trains, complimentary ice cream and cookies from two of our sponsors. Bring your cameras, your questions, and especially your kids! TAT runs between 9AM and 1PM, so come early.

Keep a visit to 470 in your summer plans this year. We are usually present at the Hancock shops, each weekend. If you are planning a visit to Acadia and passing through Ellsworth, we are 2.4 miles north on Main Street. Drop me an email at newenglandsteamcorp@gmail.com before you come, so somebody will be able to host you.
