The situation this year has made our on-line presence more important than ever so our web site, FB page and the ticket booking service has gotten a solid work out.

In September, we also surpassed 11,000 "likes" on the Facebook page.

To put that in perspective, here is a list of the 5 most liked railroad attractions in northern New England, according to Facebook:
#52,068 - Clark's Trading Post
#27,772 - Conway Scenic Railroad
#27,115 - Mt. Washington Cog Railway
#11,082 - WW&F
#11,015 - Maine Narrow Gauge
Then EVERYONE ELSE!

Love it or hate it, Facebook is the most important tool we have for reaching those interested in railroading, as well as families and individuals looking for something interesting and fun. The FB team tries to strike a good balance in engaging these two audiences - and the results speak for themselves.

Meanwhile, trains are sold out for the next TWO weekends, and selling briskly through the end of October. When I ask passengers how they heard about us, the vast majority respond "Facebook."

Well done again fb team. Given the situation it's of a paramount importance to show the world that not only WW&F has kept the lights on but it's preparing the future. fb is an amazing tool to promote and publicize anything  under the sun provided that you know how to handle it and you both know it, to put it midly. Although AMTP fb team have uploaded  posts and photos  almost every week since May,  there are only 2282 followers and that number keeps steady. But like WW&F most visitors have heard about AMTP via fb.
