Perhaps some will be interested in seeing our latest project--A station building patterned after stations at Sheepscot and Alna Center.  This is not a scale model but is proportioned to generally match the size of our engine and cars while still being large enough for our station agent to work inside.  The actual floor level is a foot lower than the apparent floor level and the ceiling is clear-story.  Plenty of room inside for 2 adults.
I'll send more pictures once the interior is finished.

Beg to differ, Kevin.  An artist, you DEFINITELY are!

I think it looks great too.  As pointed out, access into the pit for mowing and snow removal has to be a major plus and the current scheme does provide greater safety, both for visitors and volunteers. So important.   All good points for sure  but also it has that element of simplicity so common in narrow gauge railroading. It has just the right "look" about it. Great job!

Will the turntable get a 360 degree outer rail or will it only have the outer rail at the "business end" as now?

That is indeed a nice photo!
And I'm not saying this just because I'm a pipe smoker.

This is INDEED a classy forum and a very classy museum railroad!

As always, Matthew's photos are so much more than just "photos" in the usual sense.
They are ART!  Great work Matthew.

John and Ed, Thank you for the kind words.
Despite my limited means I am doing my best to honor the great work being done at Alna.  You may be sure that everyone who visits our little project goes away with at least some knowledge of Maine two foot railroading in general and of the WW&F Railway Museum in particular.

Great job, one and all!  Thank you for working so hard (and smart) to save an important part of our American history.

We are getting to the point of building some replica structures.  Does anyone know what paint colors were used on the Sheepscot station, tank, etc?  Also the "yellow" on the barn?

Sure would be nice to be able to match the prototype colors!
Thanks in advance.

With all the snowfall hitting the Northeast, I wonder how did Sheepscot fare?
