I get the "log on" dialog all the time.  Just hit <Esc> and it goes away.

Hi Keith,

I'm also a member of the non-Facebook club. However, I can read (and view photos) our public Facebook page just fine. Be sure you use this link:
https://www.facebook.com/Wiscasset-Waterville-and-Farmington-Railway-Museum-147279126870/

Ed I still get not logged in using that address.

Today's post features a look at our crew working the museum tables at the ARS Big E Railroad Show as well as some attractions in the other buildings.  We chose a variety of exhibits to show the type of things found at the show including a couple of surprises.  Enjoy the tour.

For what it's worth, Facebook has now blocked the "free" link to the WWF postings. Is there another "back door" to the WWF area of Facebook? Otherwise, anyone who wishes to view Stewart's postings will be forced to join Facebook or forego the postings.

I just ignore the banner that says to connect, log in or sign up.  Scrolled down past the banner, and clicked on the pictures.  Everything showed fine for me.

Locomotive #9 turns 125 this year.  Check our fb page for a look at #9 back in 1891 when she was SRRR #5 the N.B. Beal.

Today we posted the second photo in the "Backward Glance" series that commemorates the 125th birthday of #9.  The series will follow our #9 from new on the Sandy River in 1891 up through 2016.  The latest image shows SRRR #5 in the Summer of 1893 after a rebuild by the Portland Company.  The repair was due to #5 being in an accident near Farmington in December of 1892.

The WW&F in Artwork is today's subject.  We feature railroad images done by talented artists for the museum.  Most of the prints are available in the gift shop.

BTW - The previous post featuring a photo of SRRR #5 in 1893 reached 7,000 people.

As of tonight we have 2,900 page "LIKES" which indicates the number of people who follow our fb page and see every post we make.  Many thanks to everyone who supports the WW&F both on line and in person.

Another "Backward Glance" photo of our #9 went up today, showing the engine in freight service in 1892.  This view is the next in the continuing series highlighting the history of the locomotive leading up to it's 125th birthday in May.
