Trip to the Narrow Gauge Railroad & Museum, Portland, ME

One of my favorite things at the Narrow Gauge Railroad and Museum was this 1926 Model T Rail Inspection Car. This track vehicle was built by the railroad shops of the Sandy River Rail in Phillips, Maine. Used by Superintendent Orris Vose ( any relation to Dr. Leonard Vose of Eddington, ME of yore?).

The standard four cylinder Model T engine.

Front View, notice the cow-catcher constructed from riveted and forge welded metal bar.
