The video is still available on their website.  Go to:

http://www.wcsh6.com/life/programming/local/207/default.aspx

and in the search box at the top of the page type in:   Wiscassett

and click on the "GO" button (yes, Wiscasset with two "t"s - don't ask me why). 

Under Local News, click on the "Wiscassett, Waterville & Farmington Railway Museum" link to bring up the video.  I watching it again now  :)

I wonder how long it will be available. If we had our own copy, we wouldn't have to worry about it disappearing.

In the upper left hand of the TV webpage, it says 207. then in small type to the right of that box it says, "more.." Hit "more" and a list will come up. I think our segment was about at the bottom of the page. Nice piece. I'm on DSL and it loaded in a heartbeat.
It was fun to hear all the New England accents and not hear anyone pronounce Georgia, Gawga like you hear down here in Gawga. Last time I heard such unusual, true accents was when Johnny Carson was still hosting "Who Do You Trust" on daytime TV back in the 1950s. And those were New York and New Jersey accents.
Do the workers smile all day or was that for the camera?

Well, actually the one that did the most narrating hails from PA. Bob G. is from Maine, but his segment was short. Brian, on the otherhand, is fromm Mass. with a nice New England accent. You should hear him say fire.

You should hear me when I launch into my Pennsylvania Dutch accent. All I know about New England accents I learned from my old "Bert and I" albums. Brian does have a nice Boston accent, though.

Hey,  It could have been worse ... if the videographer got the framing crew he would have heard some "Baltimoreeez"  Thanks Hon!

There are older ones still on there, like the bridge one.

Anyway, I checked my history and this can currently be found at:
http://www.wcsh6.com/life/programming/local/207/story.aspx?storyid=94353&catid=50

I wonder if these are sorted by popularity tempered with time.  Maybe if we all hit the page it will sort back into the popular items and will keep the museum with a little PR.

Found it!
Wow... almost like being there!
Sorry I missed you guys this time. I never seem to make the fall weekends, but I've made the spring meets a couple times.
