Host John MiddletonJohn Middleton's life of dedicated volunteer service was honored this past weekend at the Seashore Trolley Museum in Kennebunkport, Maine.

He was on the board of the museum and also a Train Host for TrainRiders/NE and in charge of our membership list.

Wherever John served, he did it with enthusiasm and grace.

Several of our board members and Train Hosts were present as well as dozens of museum members.

The museum is a great place to visit, ride a heritage trolley and roam around their store.


And their website is a fascinating presentation of early rail transportation.
