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!
