WCVB Chronicle Monday, July 18th
« on: July 16, 2022, 04:41:27 AM »
It looks like the WCVB-TV Chronicle episode on Wiscasset, including our Railway, will air at 7.30 p.m. Monday, July 18th.  Hopefully the Museum segment will be posted online.

Brilliant, just brilliant.  I just watched the first 10 minutes, two segments, which focused on the WW&F, followed by Don and Marsha Lyons and SeaLyon Farm.

I expect WCVB will post links to these segments on their website and YouTube later this evening.
What–me worry?

I though it was great. Naturally I would have liked a full 30 minutes on the WW&F, but I thought the selected minutes were a good synopsis and very well done. Congratulations to Steve and Dave!

It was very well done. I like how they mention that everyone is volunteer and so many other terrific highlights.

As Dave said, we are truly a very fortunate group, with many diversified talents among us.

Hi All
I send a suggestion to Chronicle about the WW&F a few weeks ago, maybe about doing a short segment on the railroad. I also suggested them on doing a short segment, on New England Steam Corporation and the rebuilding of Maine Central 470.
I watched the program last night and I think that Chronicle did and excellent job, on the railroad, the farm segment, and Maine itself. So if you wondered where Chronicle got the idea I send them the  suggestion, Pat.

It turns out that Chronicle keeps a file of suggested places to visit, and there had been many calls on them to visit the WW&F over the years.

In this case, they had decided to profile Wiscasset, which led them to the WW&F. Initially, they were curious about using the handcar - and then discovered we we much more interesting beyond just that one tidbit. (They didn't even mention the handcar in the final cut!)
