I'll do that.  It will officially put me on the Build 11 roster.


Great idea to put the platform at step level.  That's a tricky gap to navigate from platform to platform, esp for small kids and older folks (like me!).

A lot of parallels in the two stories, but across the pond!

Kevin, you take such amazing photos!  And I'm glad you're one of us as well.

For those coming to FWW, there is a new restaurant in Wiscassett called Jodie's.  It's located in the old Hot Spot on Route 1, but has been nicely renovated.  It's owned by a family from the south (North Carolina, I believe).  The menu is pretty typical breakfast/lunch, but definitely has grits!  The food is good and the servings are generous.  You may want to try it out during FWW.

That being said, Ed, I think you did a fantastic job with the new website.  It is smart and appealing, and easy to navigate.  Kudos to all involved, and I look forward to the new features still to come.

Excellent news!  I am hopeful for a passenger (albeit mostly tourist) resurrection on the branch.

(Heard the weekly train going by today!)

This is a valuable resource for all of us interested in Maine 2 footers.  I know it's constantly changing, so keep it up!

Really well done article.  Bravo to the writer who really got it right.

The work done on the station has been and is fantastic.  It's going to be a terrific dual destination:  railroad depot and trailhead stop/shelter, reflecting the growing partnership collaboration between the WW&F and the Land Trust


If this publisher is who I think it is, you probably have seen their books in many commercial places (bookstores, tourist stores, even hardware stores).  Paperbacks, about 5" x 8".  Sepia front color.  All photos Black and White inside.  Focused on local history.
