Default Rockland Maine turntable and engine house

In Rockland Maine there is a rail yard with a turntable and engoine shed built in 1921. Only one engine remains and the turntable is workable but never used. Dragon cement co uses the line the most.

Any speeders or engines laying abouut? Those lights would bring a pretty penny around here! Too bad that seem to be in a scrap pile. Thanks for the pix!

I was soooo tempted to take a light or a sign but there were a couple of workers there. Only one engine left according to a worker. I didn't see any speeders but it was getting dark and I didn't have much time to look around.
