Remarks & Notes 
Brakeman Bill Baskerville surveys his train from the rear platform of caboose No. 320. He is rolling southbound near Rosewood Crossing on the Wiscasset, Waterville & Farmington, a reconstructed 2 foot gauge steam railroad in Alna Maine.

The WW&F crew is very resourceful and the tree stumps in the background are indicative of this. For example, it is very difficult and very expensive on the open market to get the large pieces of wood needed for the railroad’s cars, buildings, bridges and turntables. So rather than pay through the nose to get what is needed, the railway cuts trees on their own land and has a volunteer custom cut the needed lumber. Those stumps were oaks that were used for timbers on flatcar No. 126 and much of dairy car No. 65 came from trees along the ROW as well.
