Many thanks, Bill. I doubt that public stations in Ohio will be picking it up.

How about something like this?

             CURIOUS?

     Turn Right at Cross Rd.

       WW&F Ry. Museum


We could have a life size cutout of Fred next to it.

The turn table site will be a curious site for all that pass by for a long time.

That seems like an opportunity to place an informative sign display board with some information about what & why about the museum and directing the curious to our Sheepscot site (and to www.wwfry.org)* for more info.  :)


*maybe even put a  QR code on the sign that resolves to the WW&F website!  ;D

I was thinking the same thing, but aren't we limitied to the number of signs we can have, due to state regulations?

Wow, you guys will have it constructed before I get up there next weekend.

Bill,

They still have a lot to do, so I think there will be work left for you when you get there.

A few years ago, it was done in NW Ohio, when two bridges were replaced where I-75 went over US 6.

Other Narrow Gauge / Re: Rockport Lime Company

The railroad was 3 ft gauge. The locomotive was an 0-4-2. According to the book All Aboard for Yesterday, the railroad had two locomotives. Both were cut up for scrap in the mid 1930s.

85 lb rail - impressive size for two foot gauge.
