Whimsical Weirdness and Foolery / Re: WW&F Visits....
« on: January 11, 2019, 02:26:11 PM »
He visits the WW&F regularly and is always taking photos while he is there.  I am terrible with names so can't provide it.  His picture is located on the first page of this thread with the date of December 27, 2012.

That is Kevin Madore.

No, the editor of another national railfan and railroad magazine was present for the April 2018 charter. The editor of THE magazine of railroading has yet to see a Maine two-footer in person.

Thanks Justin for publicizing your visit, kind words, and the continued exposure you bring to our operation.

(Now we just have to convince that Editor of yours to make good on his plan to finally visit the slim gauges of Maine.)

Question:  If a visitor, (non-member), comes and volunteers their time to cut and clear should they be obligated to buy a ticket?  Maybe we should revise our Facebook page to state that tickets are free if you volunteer your services cutting and clearing.

Correct. I will clarify that on Steam and Saws Facebook event page.

Does this mean Steam and Sleighs is cancelled? I noticed this on facebook as well, and fear people attending might be confused.

No, they are two separate events running concurrently. Each has different ad demographics.

I think this is as clear as can be made possible on Facebook. If anyone has any specific suggestions on how this can be clarified, please contact me (or Steve P) directly.

Museum Discussion / Re: Source for a conductor's hat?

If I recall correctly, he was in the Better Living Center.

A look at the 2019 vendor list and map, I think he is "American Railway Supply", Better Living Center, Booth 52, tables B, C, D.

I purchased my hat from a supplier at the Springfield RR show last year. He does not have a web site, and I no longer have his contact information. That said, he had every size there at Springfield last year, and made sure it was a perfect fit.

The WW&F Gift shop sells WW&F hat badges. I ordered a bunch of the "Chicago Screws" to fasten the badge to the hat, and gave them to the Gift Shop to include with future badges. You will need to drill out the badge slightly to fit the screws.

Now, as far as the REST of the conductor's outfit... I assembled mine (over time) at Goodwill.

Sounds like it was a very productive day. How was the notice "published" so people knew there would be train rides?

It was announced on our Facebook page and web site. There wasn't a huge push to get the word out. This method seems to work well for last-minute events.

Keith's issue seems to be something on his end. We checked all his settings, even tried an alternate email address.

Museum Discussion / Steam Trains 2019 Calendar Features WW&F.
« on: December 03, 2018, 01:00:38 AM »
While we are always partial to the museum-produced calendar featuring Stephen Hussar's photographic artwork,  Kevin Madore's work is nationally-distributed as "Steam Trains." For 2019 (as was in 2017 and maybe others) one month includes a shot of the WW&F. This time, a winter photo of #9 taking water at Sheepscot.


Thanks Kevin for the national exposure!
