|this is john j. gilson sr again. i am sending you these pictures for your records. The first one is a picture of one of the engines. it is the freedomland number 3 engine from 1960. The second one is me at the schaefer brewery at freedomland from 1960. i'm the kid with the cowboy hat. the color picture is me and my sister Debbie in sanfransico's china town at freedomland. The last picture is me as an engineer on the Walt Disney World railroad. I believe the number 3 engine at freedomland is now the number 3 monson railroad locomotive at the Maine Narrow Gauge Railroad in Portland, Maine. i think their number 4 will turn out to be the other freedomland engine. i'm not sure though. you can visit their website at www.datamaine.com/mngrr/ What do you think? thanks, again, John j Gilson sr.|
Here's a photo of the entrance sign that stood outside Freedomland
