The above link is to my gallery of photos from the WW&F's March and April photo excursions.

From the equipment, structures, and right-of-way all the way down to the very talented and skilled people involved; its a showcase of how serious and dedicated they are to the history of the Maine 2-footers. And it shows in the smallest of detail; throughout a recipe of all the best ingredients that come together to create the most satisfying experience imaginable. These scenes need few words to describe.

My post two months ago featured images void of the human element, focusing on the timeless environment recreated. In this update I bring forth a few of the core members, placing the interaction between man and machine at the forefront.

Enjoy,
Matthew

Excellent as always Matthew. There are several of us that miss out on these great creations, due to them being held during the week. But we still try and focus our efforts on creating the magic shown in your photos.

Thanks for sharing.

As always, Matthew's photos are so much more than just "photos" in the usual sense.
They are ART!  Great work Matthew.

Once again here is the first gallery I mentioned, a series of photos captured the morning of March 25th, early before the photo excursion commenced.

This year's Narrow Gauge Convention is being hosted in Augusta, Maine - an hour drive from the WW&F in Alna. I highly suggest a visit!
