Earlier today, a crew from the History Channel stopped by to film a segment on the WW&F. Tony Bennett and Chris “Codfish” Codwell recently answered an ad in Uncle Henry’s for a pile of “train parts”. It turns out that the cast of “Down East Dickering” had found the bell, whistle, and other assorted hardware salvaged from WW&F #8 in a barn in Whitefield.

However, they got more than they bahgained for.

Fortunately for us, our own dickerers,  Fred and Zach were on hand to handle the negotiations. When they started, Tony and Codfish had their sights set on a trade for the Terraloader tractor at Alna Center. Apparently, Tony and Codfish had a client that needed a front end loader for pushing around some broken down cars in his front lawn. However, Fred and Zach handled everything, and Tony and Codfish settled for an even trade for a bucket of used nails and an empty burlap sack.

Fred and Zach are set to star in next season of “Down East Dickering.” Meanwhile, the bell, whistle, and related hardware has been inspected by Jason, and safely stored in “Alice’s Closet.”

Must be saving the Terra Loader to trade even for a Two foot Garratt.

Isn't being a great horse trader in the DNA of Maine Men?

Time to 'jack up' the bell and whistle and build a new locomotive underneath...

I know this may "steam" some folks, but if this is truly the items from #8, would it not be proper to build the next engine as a reincarnated #8 rather than a #7 copy?  The mating of the original items with a new engine would be quite a story.  Possibly a mini-series for Stephen.

It will air on April 1, 2016 - exactly one year after the taping occurred.
