Maine Narrow Gauge Railroad and Museum

Living history museum dedicated to Maine's small gauge railroads and equipment. Situated right on the harbor looking out on the Atlantic ocean. They provide education and short trains rides in their historic trains. It's also a great area for watching ships go by and having a picnic.
