What a great public relations plug.  Well done all that contributed to this.  I could almost smell the steam.....

Couldn't help notice the irony in the editing about 20 seconds in...

At least one upcoming group (who chartered the caboose for a Pumpkin Pickin' Train) heard about us because of this segment.

I wouldn't be surprised if there are more charters and general attendance, based on WTMW's visit.

Indeed- We’ve already directly linked at least a few visits to the WMTW show. It was a very nice job by the news team and their crews. As for the power driver... developed by Wiscasset Shop crews in 1908 ;)
