Tea Kettles & Model Ts The WW&F Museum's Model T Railcar holds the siding at Alna Center, as the the hourly excursion train passes by on its southbound run to the railway terminus at Sheepscot. In the early 1900s, several of Maine's 2-foot railroads, including the WW&F, utilized small, automobile-based railcars as track inspection and MOW vehicles. Sadly, the WW&F's original railcar did not survive the scrapping of the railroad in the mid-1930s. The present-day WW&F Museum recently constructed the replica seen here, utilizing a genuine Model T front-end and a new-build chassis. This car incorporates a built-in turntable, that enables it to be jacked and turned by its crew, while out on the line. Since it was introduced 2 years ago, this car has found all sorts of uses, including as a fire patrol vehicle during dry seasons. It is also used frequently to provide rides for small parties of visitors, when the museum's regular trains are not running. On this particular day, a group of visitors arrived with a 90 year-old gentleman having limited mobility. The museum folks elected to take this group out using the railcar, since it would be easier for the elderly fellow to board than the regular train. The car nominally seats 6, but can take up to 3 more, if the people are small.
