Remarks & Notes 
Flag Stop: Alna Center. Like a lot of rural railroads in early 20th Century America, Maine's 2-foot operations were dotted with small, rural stations at which passenger and freight traffic were sparse. Rather than schedule stops in these locations, they were instead set up as flag stops....meaning the train would stop if someone flagged it down. Such was the case on the WW&F with the site at Alna Center. In this scene, with the red flag displayed in front of the station house, a northbound mixed has stopped to pick up a shipment of raw milk from a local dairy farm. Handling the loading chores this day is WW&F Conductor Jonathan St. Mary, as Engineman Rick Sisson waits patiently in the cab of Locomotive #9.
