Great pictures Brocky, thanks for posting them. I need to get up there some day and see his collection. Irv called me about a month before he died and we has a nice conversation but that's another story and someday I will tell that one.

Thanks, it was a great time.. The Cole's museum in Bangor has a lot of various Maine related equipment literley stuffed into a fairly large building with displays hanging off the ceiling and loaded onto the back trucks,ETC. The Owls Head Transportation museum was also interesting although mostly rare cars and airplanes. ATHS and Diamond T collector, Toby Stinson is the events manager and gave us a quick tour and a ride in a 1925 Model T touring car before leaving us to explore on our own. Since it was the middle of the week, and my wife was about "trucked" out, I did not contact a busy Daryl Gushee to spend some at his shop and boneyard. 

We also did the Bay of Fundy in New Brunswick and Nova Scotia. A very pretty and interesting trip on some VERY rough back roads!! Just was not at the right place at the right time to see their very high tides come in or go out although we saw the bay in both stages a various times. 

All together, with various New England tourist sights included, a person can spend a very enjoyable long two week vacation up there and still not see it all.

How are your air tanks doing??


My air tanks are working but according to the last pulmonary function , working at only 48%.  But they're not full of water anymore.  Everybody seems to think that I'm doing lots better, I think I'm doing a little better.

Thanks for posting the photos, Brocky.  Too bad it's so far away.

Daryl bought all the trucks that they didn't want for the museum and would otherwise have gone to scrap.

Jeff and Craig

Yes they do rotate the display at the pavillion!!  and they may have more storage barns I did not get a chance to see?? I understand that Erv had trucks scattered all over town!! and Many were moved to Daryl's place.

Nice collection, Brocky.  Thanks for sharing.  Is there any way you can copy them for Leroy?
