Kennebunkport is believed to be the oldest railway museum in the world, situated in New England, not far from Boston. To British eyes, it is more light rail than railway, with a wonderful collection of tram cars, many of the older ones being more rural then urban. A number of buses populate the museum too, and we start our tour with those. The pictures come from a visit in October 1998.

It is not known where this vehicle hails from, despite its livery, it's certainly not Edinburgh.

This extraordinary looking pre-war vehicle was in an advanced state of restoration and safely stored under cover in a shed full of trams and buses in varying states of restoration or decay.

Some of the buses parked outside also needed a degree of attention, the khaki coloured citybus is thought to be an ACF-Brill and alongside is a vehicle that could masquerade as a Green Line Q type but is believed to be a 1946 Ford.

Restoration of this normal control vehicle clearly has some way to go, but has the potential to be a magnificent machine again one day.
