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!

From a small spark of interest, to the dramatic spectacle of a burning cane field at night, Alan Shaw tells about his discovery of Australia's 2-foot gauge cane railways. It's the story of One Sweet Conversion today on The Trackside Photographer...

Museum Discussion / WW&F receives award for Moose Brook bridge project
« on: November 12, 2018, 07:07:09 PM »
The WW&F was honored directly and indirectly by two different awards bestowed by the HeritageRail Alliance at their Fall convention. The Significant Achievement Award-Structures recognized the saving, reconstruction, moving and placement of the former Boston & Maine Moose Brook bridge onto the WW&F at Trout Brook. The WW&F also accepted a Friend of Railway Preservation Award on behalf of the Ramsdell/King family, who over three generations saved WW&F locomotive #9 from the scrappers torch. Our own Jason Lamontagne was on-hand to receive both awards.

Wayne Laepple wrote a nice article for Trains NewsWire. At least right now, a subscription/login is not required to read it:

I'm negotiating my presence. Looks likely, but no promises yet.

My understanding is that the "stolen sawmill at Alna Center" is completely separate from the temporary siding used for lumber operations somewhere near Sheepscot Mills.
