AAA Editor Notes

Wiscasset, Waterville & Farmington Railway Museum, 97 Cross Rd., preserves the history of the Wiscasset, Waterville & Farmington (WW&F) railway, a 2-foot narrow gauge railroad in use 1894-1933. The railroad is currently being rebuilt by volunteers using original tools and methods. The museum includes an agent's desk, manual typewriters, kerosene lanterns, crank telephones and other items from the early 1900s. Train rides are offered on restored passenger cars pulled by steam locomotives. The 35-minute, 5-mile roundtrip journey begins at Sheepscot Station and continues into the woods of Alna. Train operators use hand signals and kerosene lanterns to preserve the methods used along the original WW&F Railway. Guided tours are available.
