Remarks & Notes 
Tanking in Wiscasset. The morning sun filters through the woods to the east, as WW&F Locomotive #9 takes on water in the Wiscasset Yard before heading to the Wiscasset Station to begin the morning mixed run up to Albion.

Of course, the tracks of the present-day WW&F Museum no longer go all the way to the waterfront in Wiscasset, and the location of the former yard in Wiscasset is now a field behind an elementary school. The WW&F Museum has built its base at around MP 4.8 at the location of the former Sheepscot Station. There, they are attempting to re-create the yard which used to exist in Wiscasset. It now consists of a large shop building (just visible behind the locomotive), a station and freight house, a large car barn, turntable and water tank (seen in the above photo.) In the not-too-distant future, they also plan to add a 3-stall engine house, which will become the new quarters for #9, a sister 0-4-4T #10, and a future 2-4-4T locomotive, which will be numbered 11. The museum currently has about 2.5 miles of track, which runs north from Sheepscot, to and beyond Alna Center. The museum's eventual goal is to reach Head Tide, roughly a mile north of the current end of track.
