Moderator Note:

Now that Maine Eastern has shut down and the Rockland Branch has officially been taken over by Central Maine & Quebec Railway, I'm going to ask that all further discussions of present and future Rockland Branch operations be posted in the CMQ Rockland Branch thread, found here:

http://www.railroad.net/forums/viewtopic.php?f=47&t=160482&p=1346932

Thanks again to Maine Eastern for their excellent stewardship of the Rockland Branch for over a decade.

This thread will remain here for archival purposes and I'll leave it open in case anyone has questions or comments about Maine Eastern that they'd like to post, but remember, if it pertains to current or future Rockland Branch ops, please post in the CMQ forum via the link above. Thanks!

I'm not sure what channel it was on, but a video just aired of a Maine Eastern excursion trip, shot from a wide variety of angles and locations between Rockland and Brunswick on cable. The end credits listed the sponsor as the Great Falls Model Railroad club based out of Auburn/Lewiston. Any ideas on when this was filmed?

Old News. Former Maine Eastern 764 was on lease to the Strasburg RR in PA
in April, filling in for their diesel switcher. 13 minutes
Video from kflanagan98. Some Strasburg steam also seen.

In my laziness, can someone confirm if in fact MaineDOT owns the roundhouse? I need to quickly contact the owner

Meh, you didn't miss much. He's kind of weird and likes to lurk on internet forums.
