Our 100,000th Passenger!

Congratulations to Andrew Kahrl, our 100,000th passenger!

When Andrew Kahrl purchased a ticket for the 1:30 train on Sunday, May 26th he didn’t expect the gift shop crew to applaud!  Arriving with his family of four, Andrew became passenger number 100,000 from a count that began in May of 1997 when the first ticket was sold. Prior to that time (1993 – early ’97) donations were taken for short train rides on flatcar 118. Andrew was promised a cab ride and handcar ride when it wasn’t raining and given a free one year membership in the museum.

Congratulations, Andrew, and thank you for riding the Sheepscot Valley Narrow Gauge!
