Remarks & Notes 
The Wiscasset Waterville & Farmington's 12-ton Vulcan heads to the car shop to begin making up her passenger train. If the cab on this locomotive looks a bit wide for a 2-foot gauge engine, that's because she was originally built to run on 30 inch gauge track at a sugar plantation in Louisiana. When her sugar cane days were over in the late 1950s, she was acquired by a tourist operation in Massachusetts called Edaville Railroad. There, she was converted to 2-foot gauge, to run alongside 4 surviving engines from the 2-foot railroads in Maine. Although she proved unsuitable for the heavy trains at Edaville, she later found a home at the newly established WW&F Museum. For the WW&F, she's been a great fit. She steams up quickly, is economical to operate and does a good job pulling the 2, 3 and 4-car trains that the museum operates. She also puts on a great show for the cameras!
