Ceremonial Passing of Deed Marks Major Step Forward for the Museum

The Maine Narrow Gauge Railroad Co. & Museum will take a major step forward toward relocating their operations in Gray on Friday, April 11, 2014 at 11:30am.  On site of the proposed new museum and train station, the Gray Plaza on Portland Road in the Town of Gray, Central Maine Power will present the deed for the right-of-way to the Maine Narrow Gauge.  “This is the key to progress for the project to move forward,” said Donnell Carroll, Executive Director.  “The right-of-way along the former rail-bed of the Portland–Lewiston Interurban provides the necessary path for us to proceed.”  Central Maine Power Company owns the right-of-way and has been negotiating language with the Maine Narrow Gauge in order to donate the property that will provide the route for the historic rail line to operate on.  Representatives from all the parties involved in the relocation effort will be present at the ceremony.  These include, owners of the Gray Plaza, town officials, development corporation members, CMP, and Maine Narrow Gauge.  The public is invited.
