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!

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!

Here's another one ...

You know you're a WW&F fan when - you think the crack in the wall looks like a map of the Winslow Branch!
