Charlie, Ben and yours truly. Both Charlie and Ben are resident historians at the new museum. Now in his 80's, Charlie is a 3rd generation railroader. Ben worked as an Agent/Operator at a number of locations along "The Shore Line" including Kingston, Wickford Jct. and Davisville.

The Old Narragansett Pier Railroad turntable. 
A local Boy Scout troop helped restore some of this ancient turntable that was used to turn locomotives for the NPRR. After turning their locomotive, the train then made an 8 mile trip down to Narragansett Pier.

A special guest makes an appearance!
