You know you're a WW&F fan when ...
« on: November 22, 2008, 12:54:41 PM »
We're on this forum because we like the Maine two foot railroads, the WW&F in particular.  I was at a railroad meet in Pennsylvania last week and saw people wearing hats, jackets, etc from a number of Maryland & Pennsylvaina Railroads.  This got me thinking of how we two-foot fans identify ourselves.  Yes, we go to the railroad and have the same railfan things - shirts, hats, etc.  For some of us it goes further, narrow gauge is a way of life ...

One example:

You know you're a WW&F fan when -  Your computer password is "Taconet"

Anybody else have one??

You know you are a WW&F fan when your license plate reads "WW&F RY". Mine does!

How about when you plan your "vaation" (or, in my case, militairy leave,) around the 3rd weeks of April and October? :P

All good posts! 

Hi Dave, there isn't much left in my 401K ... and I thought it was the stock market going down.  The truth comes out! The WW&F legal department comes through. 

BTW here's another for you.

You know you're a WW&F fan when - your dinner guests are drinking from WW&F Museum mugs!

You know you're a WW&F when you check the Discussion Group every two hours and are depressed when there's no new postings.
Stewart, my 401K tanked so bad I'll now be working until I'm 92!
