Hi Joe,

Good idea. We have thought of doing an "ad" to promote steam operations for Memorial Day weekend, just have not decided on what to post.  Thursday is usually a news post so we may do it as a news piece.

Thanks!

I am reminded of the "Concerto for Horn and Hardart," the decriptipn of which asks the listener to note the "melodious sound of the Hardart." The Wikipedia entry for this piece is most illuminating.  ;D

Our Sunday news post is about a special charter last Friday for the MacBain family who donated to the 21 Campaign.  It was nice hosting them, touring, switching and running trains on a relaxed schedule.  The news photos include coach #8 being turned so the rolling door in on the east side.  It's the first time a coach has been on the turntable.

The Sunday evening post features a video of the Mason's train leaving Sheepscot back on June 18th.  See if you can spot some of the lively crew members as the train rolls by.

As of this morning, June 26th, there are over 4,400 people following the WW&F page on facebook.  Thanks to everyone for promoting the museum's page including the volunteers who give shop/yard tours on weekends and tell visitors about our web site and fb page.

Today's post is a beautiful Stephen Hussar photo taken at AC.  The old-timey view advertises our running steam on Saturday and Sunday and invites people to visit the WW&F where we are rebuilding a rare part of Maine history.

Worth noting is that the video we posted last Sunday of the Mason's train leaving Sheepscot received over 9,500 views.
