BOOTHBAY 1
Title:  BOOTHBAY 1
Description:  Boothbay Central Railway 1 at Boothbay, Maine on an unknown day in August 1981, Kodachrome by Chuck Zeiler. I was in a tight spot, or I would have gotten a better photo. It appears this locomotive received a replacement boiler (#10187) as the builder's number seen here does not match what the site railwayvillage.org shows. The following is from that site:

Baldwin Steam Locomotive #14283 Built (April) 1895 for S. D. Warren Co., Westbrook, ME. Sold to Van Walsh, Hr., of Ridgewood NJ. Sold to Boothbay Railway Museum, 1969. 0-4-0T. Display

BOOTHBAY 1
Title:  BOOTHBAY 1
Description:  Closeup of Boothbay Central Railway 1 builder's plate at Boothbay, Maine on an unknown day in August 1981, Kodachrome by Chuck Zeiler. It would appear that this plate is on a replacement boiler for an 0-4-0T 36 gauge locomotive built in April 1985 for the S. D. Warren Company, which carried the original serial number 14283. So far, no records have surfaced for Extra Order Baldwin numbers.

BOOTHBAY 7
Title:  BOOTHBAY 7
Description:  Unknown folks and Boothbay Central Railroad 7 at Boothbay, Maine on an unknown day in August 1981, Kodachrome by Chuck Zeiler. This locomotive was built in 1938 by Henschel in Germany. There appears to be a hose connected to the pipe below the front number plate. I'm not familiar with their manufacturing process, this might be a way to replenish the water supply.
