Remarks & Notes 
Building a photo freight. WW&F Engineer Dana Deering positions Caboose 320 in front of the platform at Sheepscot Station, as he begins to build the evening photo freight that has become an annual tradition at the WW&F Annual Picnic.

Caboose 320 is fairly typical of cabooses that were used on Maine's 2-ft. railroads. They were built like box cars and often had sliding cargo doors, just like box cars. The distinguishing feature of course, is the cupola on the roof. Two-foot cabooses often had some baggage/freight space, as well as seats that could, on occasion, accommodate passengers. Although the 320 is not a historic piece...meaning it never ran on the original WW&F back in the day, the museum considers it an original piece of rolling stock, rather than a replica. That's because the original WW&F did have drawings and plans for this caboose, but never actually built it before going out of business. When the museum took those plans and actually built the car a few years back, they were simply completing a project that the original line never quite finished.
