Remarks & Notes 
A late night in Sheepscot. WW&F Yard Hand James Nobilini oils around Locomotive #9 as it turns on the Sheepscot Turntable, prior to being put away for the night. In the days of the original WW&F Railway, this scene would have played out in the Wiscasset Yard, just a few hundred yards north of downtown, and on the western shore of the Sheepscot River. Today, that location is owned by the town and is the site of the athletic fields at the Wiscasset Elementary School. The yard for the WW&F Museum is about 5 miles north of Wiscasset, on the original right of way, at the former location of the Sheepscot Flag Stop. Slowly, but surely, the museum is re-creating the Wiscasset Yard here, including a shop building, car barn, station and the turntable seen in this photo. The next big yard project? That would be construction of a 3-stall engine house, right at the edge of this turntable pit.
