I'll bet Mike has already began to design some hi-rail gear for this ;)

The Railroad Museum of New England also hosted M R R #3 back on September 21-22, 2002.  It was a display-only visit and she remained on the trailer.  This was the weekend following it visit and operation at Bedford, MA to commemorate the 125th anniversary of the Billerica & Bedford, America's first 2-footer.
The loco certainly looks much better today than in 2002 thanks to the recent overhaul that brought it back to a more realistic Monson-era appearance.

Stewart and James (and the others) thanks for all the time and effort you put into this - it's such an important link for those of us from away.

Joe you just proved that railroading adventure continues with your generation - even steam railroading adventure!
Thank you for sharing this.

Stewart, I saw that the Alna V F D was on the emergency shelter list so I figured there were problems in the area.

Hello All - this forum has been very quiet over the past few days - how much snow did we get at Sheepscot?
Hope all is well with everyone and best wishes for a happy and healthy 2017.

Once at the Naugatuck Railroad several years ago during a visit of a Gramling saddle tank engine (Flagg Coal #75) my wife Sue ran and her sister Sally fired for a couple of runs with 3 heavyweight coaches.  Sally was a qualified fireman on the steamship "Sabino" at Mystic and found the bouncing of an industrial loco a far cry from the smoothness of a ship!

Very interesting photo.  As my first visit to the area (when I was 15) was during a family vacation drive from western Mass. to a campground near Somesville ME in 1965, this confirms my memories of the buildings on both sides of the Wiscasset end of the US 1 bridge and "that strange long abandoned pier" that I later found out was the WW&F trestle.  Little did I know then how familiar I'd get with the area 30 plus years later!

Excellent as always, Kevin!  Thank you for sharing your work.

According to a post in the Downeaster topic in forum (Amtrak section), a siding at Royal Junction is scheduled to be completed in 2018 and after this all 5 round trips will operate to and from Brunswick.

Weather exposure is very evident on the RMNE's former Rutland #260 combine, donated to us by the Vermont Rail System.  The wood-bodied car's present west side certainly had far more "weather-wear" than does the east side.  The west side is also the station platform side so it is being repaired, including a new baggage door prior to our Christmas operation.  Unlike the WW&F the RMNE's Naugatuck Railroad has no turntable or wye so we don't have any easy way to turn our equipment.
