Thanks for post. I don't like that stupid town for turn train away from station. I hope federal and state will work on it and return train to station. It is not safe for passenger to aboard train at roundhouse. No body complain about smoke from WW&F Railway. I will go on MERR next week.

It's fair to say that nobody complains about smoke from the WW&F because very few people live nearby.
Maine Narrow Gauge is required to fire up their steam engines on the far end of their railroad (near the bridge) because they were getting too many complaints from the people in the apartment buildings near the rail yard.
