Restoration of Maine Central RR Locomotive 470

with Richard Glueck


The last largest steam locomotive remaining in New England pulled its final trip on June 13, 1954. The 470 played a significant role pulling "The Bar Harbor Express" between 1924 and 1947. The New England Steam Corporation has purchased Maine Central 470, and is actively restoring it to service. Once operational, 470 will promote heritage tourism, enhance education, and expand economic growth. #470 wil bring the sound of the whistle back to Maine's towns and cities, reliving the experiences of steam railroading that have been missed by generations of Mainers. Join Richard Glueck as he shares details about the restoration of Maine Central 470.
