Remarks & Notes 
Five miles to go. A WW&F Passenger Train, modestly decorated for the holiday season, whistles for the private crossing known as Jayne's Way, exactly five miles from the railroad's southern terminus in the seacoast town of Wiscasset, Maine. Of course, the tracks no longer reach to Wiscasset, but the passengers on this train don't really care. They're patrons of the WW&F Museum's annual Victorian Christmas event, and they're returning from a visit with Santa Claus at nearby Alna Center. Every year, the first train leaves Sheepscot for Alna Center somewhere between 10AM and 11AM (depending on how crowded the platform is getting) with just two coaches. By the time it returns, the line to board is typically off the platform and out into the street. When this train arrives in Sheepscot moments from now, the very first order of business will be the addition of a couple more cars. At that point, the schedule will go right out the window, and the little train will cycle back and forth between Sheepscot and Alna Center just as fast as the crew can unload and load passengers at each end. By the end of this day, well over 800 people will ride the longest remaining Maine 2-foot railroad that runs on original right-of-way.
