Sheepscot Railway Village
« on: September 21, 2022, 04:56:49 PM »
Of course, we all know about the Boothbay Railway Village. The WW&F Museum board has decided to copy their idea, but in a more modern way: with transit development. The museum owns excess land over and beyond the 66' right of way needed for the railroad. It has decided to build a condominium block to sell to museum members. Of course it will have a dedicated siding and regular passenger service to the station.

Russ,
You are either 6 months late (April 1, 2022) or 6 month early (April 1, 2023).

I think some might find the conditions of tenancy on said land to be at odds with their way of life.

I think this thread should be viewed in the context of the announcement in the most recent WW&F newsletter regarding the cemetery at TOM.  :D
