At 4 PM this afternoon (5/28/17), Ed Lecuyer reported that the forum was reporting itself as crashed. As of this post, Ed and James are still pondering what to do. Please be patient. We may have lost posts from after 1 PM 5/27, we’ll see what happens.
May 30th update: The forum was restored from backup and is now available again. If you have not had a chance, please visit our forum and get the latest up-to-minute news on museum activities!
We have held several private steam train events in January and February, and our Easter Eggspress April 15th was very popular, with nearly 1,100 visitors. But after a long winter and early spring, we’re very happy to be starting our 2017 regular operating season!
Over the next three Saturdays (May 6th, 13th and 20th), we will be operating diesel and Model T railcar trains under our spring train schedule. Diesel trains depart Sheepscot station (97 Cross Road, Alna) at 10.30 a.m., 12 noon and 1.30 p.m. If crew and our railcar are available, our Model T railcar will run at 10.55 a.m., 12.25 and 1.55 p.m. Our summer schedule will start May 27th, with steam trains that weekend.
While there is a charge to ride our trains (except during Victorian Christmas), a visit to our Museum grounds is always free! Stop by any Saturday 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. in May to see what projects are underway and watch trains depart and arrive at Sheepscot station. Learn more about the Maine two-footers!
