The Thursday post features tools used by the original WW&F as well as today.  Some were marked but most were not.  One of the most common items is the hand lantern which was used in many jobs from engine and train crew to shops, yards and stations.  Tune in to see what original things remain and what is still being used in 2017.

Thanks for showing WW&F's former stations and some history to a guy who has never been north of Boston.
