New Haven RDC 32.

Union Pacific DC7 Dapco Hi-Railer. With that picture it was time to board the museum's train. I got in line but when they went to punch my ticket, he told me to ride in the Maine Central Caboose. I climbed up into the cupola and met a father and his two daughters who were already there. Once everyone had boarded the train, we took off for the turntable.

The rest of the trip to the turntable. Here we all detrained for a ride on the turntable.

Maintenance equipment. Once everyone was on the turntable, the operator started it up and we started one rotation of the turntable.
