South Portland, Maine

A flat opening off one of the side streets in South Portland, Maine gives one a nice view of the shop track and office building. I took this view during a visit on Sept 6, 2016.

Don Janes and I stopped later in the afternoon at South Portland, Maine, the PanAm - MEC Rigby yard on our way to the National Narrow Gauge Convention in Augusta, Maine. Although it was a short visit we did see a good amount of power...George Dutka 

One needs a telephoto lens to get a close look at the power.

It would have been great to have a closer look at the two plows behind the office building.

Don and I headed to the north end of the yard to catch a train departing with three nicely painted PanAm engines. These views are taken from near the old control tower. We are standing on a raised portion of the road next to our vehicle and with a cop car right next to us.

We got distracted taking our photos as the police officer seem to want to ask us some questions regarding what we were up to right when the train was going by. All was good though.
