W&WR? I assume you mean the WW&F? The near term goal would be Route 218 in Alna which is a little over a mile away from the current end of track. A little longer term goal is potentially Head Tide and beyond.

What about the Route behind The Station and Car Shop beyond the road! Is that route going to be Restored too? :)

Extending the route behind the station beyond the road (or crossing 218 on the way to Head Tide) would involve crossing a public road. Doing so would make the WW&F an FRA-regulated railroad. The WWF folks do not fear this and are gradually adopting many of the procedures and paperwork that would be involved. Nevertheless, it is something that it would be nice to postpone as long as possible.

Type cross road alna me in google maps, click on satllite and zoom in on the WW&F Sheepscot station & yard. By following the WW&F right of way on the south side of Cross Rd you'll see how far it goes before coming to a dam and pond.
