WW&F Wins Grand Prize photo contest
« on: December 18, 2017, 03:55:24 PM »
I just got word from museum Member Matthew Malkiewicz that a photo he entered in a Downeast Magazine photo contest has won grand prize. Congratulations Matt to a superb photograph that captures the railroad's magic to stepping back in time.

Scroll down to Grand Prize: Lifestyle.

It's a great photo. Good shot of a very business-like conductor.  ;)

Wow! What a cool photo! Now to get Down East to do a feature on the WW&F....

The photo will be publicized in a special 2018 issue. I am sure Matt M will tell us what issue it appears in. It would be nice to get them to do a story on the Railway, especially with how widespread the magazine is.

I pitched a story to Down East a year or so ago, but they evidently have a stable of "regulars" and don't like free-lancers.

Outstanding, high quality pics. Thanks for posting, especially the train-in-the-woods one.  :D

The rest of the prize-winning pics are "not too shabby"!

We landed in exquisite company...

Thank you everyone!

Full credit must go out to Stephen Piwowarski for letting me know about the photo contest back in October, and to Joe and Bob for collaborating to set up this scene. It captures the charm and essence of 2-foot railroading in Maine, the winter sleet adds great atmosphere.
 
I hope the WW&F can piggyback off of this to have an entire article with accompanying photos published in a future issue of Downeast Magazine; would be great publicity for the Museum.
 
A very Merry Christmas to all…
Matthew

An outstanding photo that shows all the dank atmosphere of a deep in the wood remote too-footer in winter. Moreover an interesting vew of the stub switch which we are not used to in France. Congratulations.
