The film is split between the Sandy River and Rangely Lakes and the Bridgton and Harrison, with a four minute segment in the middle on the Monson and the Wiscasset, Waterville and Farmington. This is the only comprehensive record anywhere of these legendary two foot lines actually running. 

The little engines race through the wildflowers of summer and slug it out with the drifts of Maine winter. Featuring freight and passenger trains—plus the unusual rail buses—you ride the cabs, cabooses and flat cars, put your shoulder to the turntable and actually pull the throttle. Black & White, 31 min.

Photographed by Albert G. Hale. 

Additional footage from L. Peter Cornwall and the collection of John Tolley. 

Sound is of the actual engines themselves recorded by Sunday River.
