I couldn't find my pictures, but you can see it reasonably well from the Google Street View picture:,-76.3448299,3a,75y,304.16h,77.91t/data=!3m6!1e1!3m4!1sUnTpueeBAkE5aoh295BUIA!2e0!7i13312!8i6656

It all looks rather lightweight and I can see how it wouldn't be too useful. Still, it's been sitting there for twenty years and if approached by a non-profit, the owner might be willing to donate it just to be done with it.. His name is Milan (don't know if that's first or last) and the phone is 607-342-5960.

Museum Discussion / Flag stop stations

The Flag Stops at Sheepscot and Alna Center are interesting. Are there any historic inventorys that show just what furnishings were in them? 

I suspect the Sheepscot station in now furnished like an agency station; that had a person staffing it all day long. Looking at the historic pictures; I do not see any electric wires going to these stations.

However, they are in a museum which has an educational mission; so it it is not such a bad thing to over-furnish these little buildings. I find it wonderous that a typewriter has to be explained to the younger visitors! I guess being a Senior Citizen has experience beyong a 12 year old! 

What are your thoughts?

Thank you for the information.  I went to the two areas you recommended and learned more.  Unfortunately I could only appreciate the photos at the web site because I cannot speak or understand French.  I am looking forward to any more information.

Work on Saturday Dec 16: Victorian Christmas.

We had about 700 people - a decent turn out.  Trains were between 60% and 80% full all day (as opposed to 105% full 2 years ago).  Two train consists were operated.  Meanwhile Santa and Mrs. Clause were at Alna Center, Eric Schade had his G-scale? train set up in the car shop, along with the hot cider.  Nancy had her snack shack set up.  And, as always, everybody seemed to have a good time.

2nd to last Steam Train coming south past the North Yard Switch

Mr & Mrs Clause caught short breaks throughout the day, but not for long..and photographer Kevin Madore prepares to catch some shots of the families as the disembark

And just to show there are other trains besides steam that we use to transport our guests, this was my ride today..
