About The Experience
In collaboration with Maine Narrow Gauge RR Co & Museum and Maine Locomotive & Machine Works, we are pleased to announce a special “surprise” one-day-only train featuring an all Sandy River consist. WW&F locomotive #9 will be backdated to its appearance as Sandy River and Rangeley Lakes locomotive #6. Phillips and Rangeley combine 2 and coach 4 – recently restored to their “red” livery will be on the train.
This consist has not been together since 1924, and will not be possible again (soon.)
The trip will run from Sheepscot station (97 Cross Road, Alna) to Top of the Mountain and return. Runbys are planned at Alna Center for photographers who wish to ride the train.
Fundraiser for the Narrow Gauge Collection
This event will serve as a fundraiser for the Narrow Gauge Railway Collection – now on display at the WW&F’s campus. Specifically, money raised is earmarked for signage and displays to be built in the Car Barn Exhibit Hall.
All ticket sales ($25 each) will be MATCHED by Maine Narrow Gauge RR Co & Museum to provide an outstanding display area that illustrates the big story of Maine’s unique little trains.Book online now!
