Title:  Rollng south
Description:  Now off the bridge from Bangor, the Turn gets moving toward Bucksport. Thats the railfan chase vehicle. It was a company car that I had on a 24/7 basis. They mostly didnt care where I took it, though I had to buy my own gas when on personal use. I lived ten miles from my job, and put 38,000 miles on it in a year.
