Monson #3 Returns to Portland Just in Time for Polar Express™


Monson #3We are pleased to announce historic Monson Steam Locomotive #3 will be in operation for this year’s Polar Express‬! The locomotive, which is a part of the Maine Narrow Gauge Railroad collection, has been on lease to the Sandy River and Rangeley Lakes Railroad for several years.  Monson #3 has been temporarily returned to Portland to carry passengers to the North Pole for the annual Polar Express™ holiday event.

Lots of hard work and restoration effort on the part of the Sandy River and Rangeley Lakes Railroad, Maine Locomotive and Machine Works, and our own dedicated volunteers combined to complete the restoration of Monson #3 just in time for this year’s event. Full steam ahead, and on to Polar Express™! It’s going to be another great holiday season!
