PORTLAND (WGME) -- Vandals hit the narrow gauge railroad, causing thousands of dollars in damage, just as it's getting set to open for the season.

Last week, someone damaged several of the cars, breaking windows and doors.

A sound system was also broken.

The executive director of the museum says vandals also smashed out the windows of a front end loader the museum owns.

The damage is estimated at almost $8,000.

Police haven't named any suspects, but the railroad's executive director says they have an idea of what's going on.

27 windows in one coach alone were smashed out.

The museum is open this week, and on weekends through April, and opens full time on May 6.

The museum is looking for donations from the public to help offset the cost of the damage.
