Remarks & Notes 
MEC 302 and Ex RI 236 are shoved to the side at a neglected shop area on the MEC at Bangor. The boarded up Alco and the number board less U-boat that looks to have been the victim of a stack fire set a somber mood with the backdrop of busted shop windows. When the MEC bought a group of retired U25B's from the Rocks estate sale it was determined to use a few of them for service and a few for parts. I don't recall anymore but I would guess that the 236 became a hanger queen and the 302 had rolled its last mile also.
