Museum Discussion / Re: Useful Stuff on eBay

Yes, you are looking north. The same seller (kayakers1107) sold a matching view a few weeks ago. Unfortunately, the museum did not purchase that slide; we are still deciding if we want this one for the archives.

This same seller has also sold many B&H/B&SR, Monson, and SR&RL slides; for those interested in those roads.

The museum has purchased the 1939 Wiscasset Shop slide.

Here is the 1937 Head Tide view. I cropped out the "ebay scan" that was across the top.
Note that this is for illustrative purposes only; the WW&F Museum does not own this photo nor the right to reprint it.

The museum is bidding on the aforementioned slide. Please do not outbid us.

I have also learned that our archivist has not been monitoring this thread, and was not aware of this slide (or the ones previously sold.) Linc Reed-Nickerson is now handling our ebay activities - please coordinate directly with him at if you see an item that we should have in our collection. Thanks!

Mike - While exploring up there late Sat, I found many parts to an old (coal?) stove just south of the section house site. Did you see these and do you think they are connected to the RR? There is also some additional metal pieces still buried there.

Evah seen an "I brake for moose trout" bumpah stickah?

No, but we NEED one when we move the bridge.

You're gonna need a bigger cannon if you want to use that thing on a Moose Trout.

Museum Discussion / Interview with Matthew Malkiewicz
« on: May 30, 2018, 01:24:07 PM »
The WW&F is blessed with many world class photographers who are members and active volunteers. This includes Matthew Malkiewicz, whose photos have given us great exposure over the last several years. In this interview, he credits US as one of his inspirations...

And I thought Alewife was just a place to catch the Red Line into Boston.

Or, of course, another way to refer to the spouse of Al.
