Rising tide stops the train

IMG_5448

The train in Machiasport used to reach the boatyard and Gates House (now the Machiasport Historical Society).  The boatyard is gone, although some of the docks are still visible at low tide.  Sea level has risen 5 feet since 1900, which is crazy when you think about it.  This can of sardines shows the train, thought it was pretty cool.
