MEC and B&ML trains at Burnham Jct., 1955 image

From: "Kent Loudon"

... I was the photographer of the 1955 image of MEC and B&ML trains at Burnham Jct. ...

I was 15 years old at the time! My parents had a summer home in Tenants Harbor, near Rockland. On that day I hitchhiked (a kid could do that back then!) to Belfast to ride the B&ML train. I continued on a MEC train to Bangor, and returned to Rockland by bus. The photo was taken on Kodachrome ASA/ISO 10 film using a (completely manual) Kodak “Pony” camera.
