Original Railway / "standard" font(s) used by WW&F on publications

Has anyone ever figured out if there was a "standard" typsetting font that the WW&F used for tickets, timetables, handbills, posters, etc.? If so what is it?

I've been reading that the first fish hatchery in Maine was at Head Tide / New Milford. Did it get served by the railway?

Some mighty fine work done bringing it back to life and some mighty fine photography is starting to show up online from the event on Saturday.

The current plan is to hold off on mainline track laying till next spring or fall, depending on how filling goes this year. The hope is to lay 1,000' at a time again like we used to do. If we can build 1,000' of track in 3 work weekends we will be almost to 218, and across Trout Brook. We have 7 work weekends between now and the estimated timeline for being over the brook if everything goes well. All of this will depend on money, and a few other matters, but that is the anticpated timeline.

Any thoughts on simple innovations to help speed the track building process?

The entire line was abandoned and the rails were removed for scrap in 1934 after a paint company called in an unpaid line of credit.

Which paint company? Was it Sherwin-Williams?

What are the rough footprint dimensions of the station?
From the older construction photos in the forum it appears to be around 10' x 12' based on the scaffolding used?
