Where was Cummings?
« on: December 07, 2017, 02:00:11 AM »
Does the conductor punch the  tickets on the train during the journey ?
Yes, we do, using real railway ticket punches. The ticket stock is a reproduction of the original WW&F Railway ticket stock, which not only adds to the authenticity, but also provides a souvenir.

Which raises a question I've been meaning to ask.  Where was Cummings?  I've noticed it listed on the tickets when punching on conductor duty.  I know it was located between Wiscasset and Sheepscot, but where exactly? 

I assume it's been discussed in one or more of the many WW&F books written over the years, but I don't remember reading about it. 

Sorry for the thread hijack!

[Moderator's Note]
I split this off the "Engine Wiper" thread since it seemed to get unnoticed in that discussion.
