The Museum's facebook page layout has been updated.  The most noticable change is that new posts are stacked in a column on the right side and the photographs in the "thumbnail" display are larger than before.  Of course you can still click on each photo (and we hope you do) to see the full image and get a detailed caption.   

As before - The WW&F page is set for public access so you don't need to be a facebook subscriber to view posts, photos and information.

Thanks,

fb team

Tonight's "LOCOMOTIVE 9 PROGRESS" report has 6 photos of work on the engine this week.  One view features an historic surprise that was discovered when Alan was cleaning the original front end castings.

Another "LOCOMOTIVE 9 PROGRESS" report has been posted with 9 photos of recent work.  Most of it done by Brendan, Rick and Team Downey.

This is the 4th Progress Report so please scroll down if you haven't seen the previous postings.  BTW - The last report has close to 900 views since it was posted Sunday night.  Nice to see so much interest in #9.

Alan and Howard,

I have been following your progress on Facebook and I admire you guys for first traveling that far to work on the WW&FRy and for your super craftsmanship on the pilot.  I also like that you set up the wood shop.  When I went up there in April, it looked much different and what you guys have done was a definite improvement.  I hope it stays that way.

Alan, you and your Dad are invited to stop here in White Haven for lunch, or dinner and a visit on your way home if your are driving and we are available like you did last year.  Are you going to take enough wood home to make #11's pilot now that you know all the ins and outs of pilot making?

Bernie

Tonight's Backward Glance is a feature on the carpentry crew building the Sheepscot Station replica during the Summer of 1993.  Modern matching photos are included for comparison.

Your fb crew has posted a new photo essay of work that Stephen Piwowarski and Marcel Levesque did on engine 9 last week.  There's projects with metal and wood ... something for everybody!

Additionally I added some photos from Saturday's NEREX and Mason's groups to Facebook.

Tonight's Backward Glance features Sheepscot Station from it's construction in 1993 to the present.  Shown are the building in various colors,  with changes to the exterior and interior.  Today, it is the true showcase of a rural steam-era depot.

The Backward Glance for today shows a very important event in the life of the museum.  The photo essay shows the crew laying the first mainline rails in front of Sheepscot station in the Summer of 1993.  It was an exciting time ... and we have come such a long way since then.  Please visit our fb page for a look back 21 years ago.

Tonights Backward Glance features construction of the Sheepscot freight house in 1995.  The building was based on the Weeks Mills freight house.  There are early construction photos and comparison views from later years.  The last shot shows the original (still-standing) structure at Weeks Mills.
