Farewell to Engine No. 4

PORTLAND, ME - The Maine Narrow Gauge Railroad Co. & Museum will be open Sat., March 29, for a special event, “Farewell to Engine No. 4.” This one day event will be the last chance visitors will have to see historic Monson steam locomotive No. 4 in action for the foreseeable future.

The 15-year federal boiler certificate on the engine expires in spring, and the museum will need to rebuild or replace the existing boiler before the locomotive is able to operate again. Don’t miss a chance to see this historic engine in action! The museum will be open from Noon to 8:00 p.m., with afternoon train rides taking place at 1:00 p.m., 2:30 p.m., and 4:00 p.m. Regular train fares apply for daytime operations ($10.00/adults, $9.00/seniors, $6.00/children, Under 2/free).

As a special treat, the museum will host a special night photo train at 7:30 p.m. Tickets for the photography event are $25.00/participant and include unlimited train rides during the day, the evening photo session and behind-the-scenes tours of the engine house. Advanced reservations are required for the night photo shoot, and can be made by contacting the museum.

The museum is open from May through October and seasonally for events. The railroad is located at 58 Fore Street in Portland, ME, on the waterfront, just a short walk from the Old Port. Directions and more information about the museum can be found at or by calling 207-828-0814.
