Remarks & Notes 
A view of the City Point Central Railroad Museum by moonlight taken at about 1AM. Located on a private siding at MP 2.5 on the 33-mile grade of the Belfast & Moosehead Lake Railroad. The 70-Ton GE locomotive, BML#51, was one of the two the BML bought new in 1946. Behind it are CPC#606 (ex-MEC#606), a restored wooden caboose built by the Maine Central in 1914, followed by MEC#656, a steel caboose built in 1964. The CPC is a privately owned museum located at MP 2.5 on the 33-mile grade of the Belfast & Moosehead Lake Railroad. The late 19th century City Point station house formerly served the MEC at Corinna, ME, on that road's Dover-Foxcroft branch.
