Rockland Maine turntable and engine house

Not eally a train "station" but I don't know where else to post. A great turntable and engine shed in Rockland,Me. The shed today only houses the single engine they still use and the turntable works but is never used. The haul some industrial supplies.

Great pictures Rick.

Presumably the red lenses are Wig-Wags from road crossings.

I think that if I were there I'd be tempted to lift a couple for my garage.

(That's not theft - it's preserving rail history )
