MEC C1900 group on platform with organ1


Came across this on Ebay. I'd like to think that this was a Maine Central shop crew, in maybe Waterville or Portland, but the location is unknown. There's a MEC box car and a group standing around several guys in business suits and a small organ. Church or temperance service in the RR Shop? Or just a shot in an industrial setting somewhere with the boxcar as a back drop?? The original is from a 5x7 print and is very sharp & crisp. Almost everyone is has a hat on, not common in the 21st century. The faces are priceless. The MEC box car 8409 isn't bad either.... /DL
