Remarks & Notes 
Passenger Service in rural Maine, circa 1920. Sandy River & Rangeley Lakes Locomotive #6 charges southbound out of Strong, ME, with an express passenger train destined for Farmington. The grease pencil markings on the back of the photo indicate it was taken in the winter of 1920, but it's quite smudged. Maybe it's 2020, I just can't be sure.

Note the rather ratty-looking tree which stands prominently on the left side of this image. It's missing most of its limbs on its lower trunk, prompting some visitors to this site to liken it to the "Jukes Tree", which stands on the Colorado Narrow Gauge, just north of the Chama River Bridge. Over the past few years, it's become affectionately known as the "2-Foot Jukes Tree" and those of us who photograph the WW&F Museum frequently are quite vocal in our encouragement that the Board of Directors keep "Fred", our most prolific tree-cutter, well away from this tree.
