This appears to be the property which is the first Wiscasset town property the line crosses from our existing ROW.  The power pole sits at the end of what was the ROW embankment before the small bridge and the line crossed 218 just south of the driveway and paralleled 218 for a short distance.

A needed piece to get to Wiscasset (eventually),  I have wondered if it would be sound, (financially), to form an LLC and have members invest to buy properties and then use them as rentals and/or air B & B's.

Thoughts anyone?

It took me a while to figure out where this was. I finally resorted to Google Maps and the address.

108 Alna Road, Wiscasset is now "SALE PENDING".
Maine real estate is crazy!

[Moderator's Note]
It is the Moderator's intent to use this thread to highlight properties that may be of interest to Museum Members who would like to "take the leap" and move closer to the railroad, while also obtaining a lot that happens to abut or include WW&F RoW (active and inactive.)

This thread is NOT for discussing the merits of the museum acquiring said properties, feasibility, etc.
