Here's an indication of the level of interest in our project to build new boilers:  

The news and photos of the shop crew flanging the first firebox plate went up last night and over 6,200 people have seen the post.

The Sunday evening post features a 100+ year old photo taken in Wiscasset of the bridge walk where everyone crossed the WW&F freight line on the bridge.  The rare view was taken prior to the construction of the Turner Centre Creamery so you see more of the trestlework.
