Planning to do some online shopping for the Holiday season? Then why not help the WW&F Railway Museum while you shop!
There are several online shopping “portals” that will donate back to your favorite cause (like the WW&F). They don’t add any cost to your purchase, and you don’t need any special software (In fact, if a website states you need to download something, try a different shopping portal). Almost every major online retailer is listed on one or more of these web sites, including “brick and mortar” stores like Walmart, specialty sites like AbeBooks, and travel websites like Hotels.com and Orbitz. The WW&F has been listed on all of the major portals for several years.
While our Museum doesn’t make a ton of money with these, every bit helps! Since we’ve been signed up with these services, we’ve received about $1,100 in total donations!
The WW&F is registered at:
Please keep this in mind whenever ordering anything online, especially during the upcoming Christmas shopping season. Thanks!
The first Saturday of every November, immediately following the end of our operating season, our Museum volunteers travel north to Albion station to help our friends at the Albion Historical Society maintain the WW&F Railway station and surrounding grounds there. This was the northern-most point of the railroad for many years!
This year, we will be at Albion on November 4th, which conveniently falls on the anniversary of the first train to Albion in 1895! We will meet at our Museum grounds in Sheepscot at 7.00 a.m. or so and plan to be arrive at Albion station at 86 Benton Road by around 8.45.
This year’s planned work will feature the usual weed-whacking and track maintenance but will also have a special twist. AHS President Phil Dow would like to do some archeological digging in and around the turntable pit to see if any nice tidbits or knickknacks can be uncovered!
Our volunteers will also have the opportunity to see the AHS’ Plymouth locomotive, which the society was able to start for the first time in a long, long time this year!
Lunch will be provided by AHS’ members Phil and Janet Dow. The weather forecast promises to be spectacular for early November this year!
We hope you can join us!
