A view of Bass Harbor Light rarely seen. Taken from 1200 feet over Bass Harbor Maine.
Some of you should be able to guess where my happy place is with little effort.
Conway Scenic Railroad GP7, 573, returns from a trip down the Valley.
Ex-Maine Central unit acquired from Guilford Rail System. Typically referred to as “Mr. Miller’s Engine”, 573 was the preferred power for the Maine Central business train by the president of the Maine Central Railroad, E. Spencer Miller. 573 led the last business train through Crawford Notch (St. Johnsbury to Portland) shortly before Guilford closed the line in 1984. When Guilford acquired the Delaware and Hudson Railway in 1984, 573 became Delaware & Hudson 573. In 1988 when Guilford sold the D&H, they kept 573 and assigned it to Springfield Terminal and renumbered it 27. 573’s first season at the Conway Scenic (1996) was operated as number 27. Today 573 is the typical motive power for Valley Train excursions.
