It is time consuming work loading a tender

Bridgton Jct. Maine. Here we see the B&H Ry. loading its tenders right from the standard gauge car on the interchange track around 1930.
As in the last post we look at the chore of coaling a locomotive on the Maine Two Footers. This photo hangs on the wall of the museum up in Portland, Maine. If it is not all that clear it is because I took a shot of it on the wall. I wonder if this car was just set off as the MEC caboose is seen in the background. Does not look like a lot of coal has been unloaded by this point. A really nice scene to model...George Dutka
