Maine: Fathers Get In Free at Railway Village June 19 Dad's Get In Free at Railway Village June 19

On Father's Day, Sunday, June 19, Boothbay Railway Village offers free admission and train rides for all fathers when accompanied by their child. Fathers, grandfathers and great-grandfathers are invited to enjoy "Maine as it used to be" through the museum's exhibits.

Steam train rides on the two-foot-gauge railroad and rides in an antique Model T car are planned. Visitors can view the model railroad exhibit that will be open especially for Father's Day, with the trains running on the massive new layout under construction.

The Village has buildings dating from the 1840s, and a collection of over 50 antique, classic and vintage automobiles. Included are cars such as a 1929 Chevrolet AC Coupe, an outstanding 1938 Packard Club Sedan and a 1962 Rolls-Royce Silver Cloud II.

Boothbay Railway Village, a nonprofit organization dedicated to preserving the history of rural life, railroads and the automobile in Maine and New England, is located on Route 27 about seven miles south of Route 1, and is open daily from 9:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. For more information, call 633-4727 or visit
