Remarks & Notes 
Cold soldiers.... Monson Railroad Locomotive #4 and Bridgton & Saco River Railroad #8 sit on turntable leads in the Sheepscot Yard for the Maine 2-Foot Grand Reunion Event. Both locomotives are owned by the Maine Narrow Gauge Railroad Company & Museum and both have operated since 2000, but neither has a current FRA boiler ticket at this time. The two engines had been housed in Portland, but the city has repurposed their former quarters, so they are temporarily living at the WW&F Campus until new quarter can be built in Portland. Monson #4 is a 19-ton Vulcan 0-4-4T Forney, built in 1918. Bridgton #8 is a Baldwin 2-4-4T built in 1924. Weighing in at 38 tons, B&SR #8 is the largest locomotive ever built for a Maine 2-Foot Railroad.
