Maine Narrow Gauge RR Co. & Museum / Relocating update to Gray?
« on: January 08, 2015, 04:55:49 PM »
Any more word on relocating to Gray? When track laying is going to begin, please post something here. If it is a day when not much is going on at the WW&F, a few of us may be able to come over to help you build some track.

General Discussion / Workin for the railroad
« on: March 27, 2013, 09:56:34 AM »
Hello everyone,

For those who might not have heard yet, I am now working for a freight railroad in Maine. I left Conway Scenic back in September and have passed all my tests and will soon be out of training. Unfortunately my time at the WW&F over the next two years or so will be limited. On the plus side I am following my dreams.  It is very diffetent, but I am enjoyong it and look foward to being with the railroad fot the next 38 years provided I can still retire at 60 when the time comes. Hopefully I can make it to the work weekend in April but Im not sure. I look foward to seeing you all again soon.

General Discussion / Conway Scenic

Hello all,

For those who ask how things are at Conway Scenic, I thought I might start a topic.

Things are going great. :)

We are currently working on installing 83 switch ties, and 570 cross ties on the Conway Line. Yesterday I installed 18 ties in an hour, and today I installed 129 ties in one day, which beats my previous record of last year at 106 ties in a day. Maine Track Maintenance is working with us with a crew of 3 guys, and are doing all the spiking with hydraulic spike hammers. I must say, they have no problem keeping up.

Conway Scenic just opened two weeks ago, and so far ridership has been farely decent, even with the high gas prices. Hopefully the rising gas prices won't discourage tourists from wanting to visit New Engalnd. 

Museum Discussion / WW&F's 20th year
« on: July 14, 2009, 07:57:38 AM »
I was wondering, if anybody had any ideas on what the museum could do for the 20th year? Conway Scenic made a video at 20 years, I was wondering if maybe we could do something really special on the picnic, and have it advertised, or maybe make a video over the next year, and go from there? What do others think? Or should it be held when the track started to be built, in 1994?
