Last days of MEC Livery
Title:  Last days of MEC Livery
Description:  This pure MEC perspective won't be around for long! The power is destined for a new livery – black with a red stripe – & the locomotive service area & nearby round house have a short life ahead. This scene was taken 6 or 7 years into the Guilford era. Today a single track runs by here and all of the large Bangor Yard is gone except a couple of sidings at the old Union Station site. I suggest viewers go to Bangor, Maine and fly to the north west side of the I-395 bridge. Inside the westbound off ramp loop the round house stalls can be clearly seen!!! This photo was taken just to the north of the turn table! A tip of the hat to the author, J David Ingles who granted permission to post his work here. /DL
