On Saturday, April 12, 2014, the Maine Eastern Railroad's equipment will be open to the public.

The Maine Eastern will host a public Touch-a-Train event at the Rockland station through a partnership with the New England Steam Corporation, who will be collecting donations at the event to support the restoration of Maine Central steam locomotive #470. Admission to the event will be free, and visitors will have the opportunity to explore the cabs, engine rooms, and other parts of the Maine Eastern's locomotives, passenger cars, and even the snowplow.

This event coincides with the first annual Maine Rail Fair, hosted by the Maine Rail Group at the nearby Owls Head Transportation Museum.
