Antique tractors and engines at Boothbay Railway Village
On Saturday, July 6, the Boothbay Railway Village will be host to the Maine Antique Power Association and the Maine Antique Tractor Club. These two organizations are dedicated to preserving unique and important mechanical labor saving devices.
The Maine Antique Power Association displays early versions of today’s internal combustion engines. These curious machines will amaze and entertain you as you stroll through the Village Green and view each different exhibit. Engines from the early 1900s powered by gasoline, diesel or steam will be on exhibit and most will be operating.
The Maine Antique Tractor Club is dedicated to preserving and operating antique tractors. Demonstrating the value of these tractors to our farming industry, they are preserving a part of our rural heritage.
The Boothbay Railway Village offers narrow gauge steam train rides, Model T Ford rides and early village exhibits. Also included in the museum exhibits is a significant antique automobile collection with over 55 vehicles, including vehicles from 1902 to 1962.
