Back when Lowell ops were being planned, there were some sour notes from members, I being one of them. While I've grown a liking of the operation, it's a different museum and has developed in its own way.
I'm often asked why I haven't qualified at Lowell, where it's only 20 minutes from Nashua, compared to Kennebunkport's 2 hours distance. The issue is if I start helping in Lowell, that's time I wouldn't be in Maine. One less person for an already stretched operations department. I'm not about to do that to Seashore, but it was hard enough to cut back this summer cause that 2 hour drive weekly catches up to the wallet.
Differences in operations that Stevie probably sees is Kennebunkport's an old interurban line, compared to Lowell's city line. Two completely different operating environments. Also since they are two different museums, two different ways of business. The only similarity is that they use streetcars, need Seashore qualification, and are run by the same society.
