    Rockland Maine is home to a working freight yard and a beautiful turntable which one of the employees told me is in perfect working condition but rarely used. Only one locomotive is there and is used to ship Dragon concrete from their facility nearby.

    Rick, Thanks for the last few posts. It is good to see some full scale railroad scenes. Those are some good historic sites.
