Remarks & Notes 
Bound for Wiscasset. With Engineman Roger Whitney at the throttle, WW&F Locomotive #9 charges south past Milepost 6 with a mixed train bound for the seacoast village of Wiscasset. On the original WW&F, Wiscasset was the railroad's hub location. It was there the WW&F interchanged with the standard-gauge Maine Central Railroad and it was there that the WW&F's main yard was located. Also located in Wiscasset was the Turner Centre Creamery, which produced dairy products from milk that came from inland farms. The WW&F fed the creamery and in this re-creation, you see their reefer car located just behind the locomotive. Although the modern-day WW&F Museum does not own the right-of-way into Wiscasset any longer, there are still small remnants of the original railroad in town. Most prominently, the pilings of the old WW&F trestle over the Sheepscot River cans still be seen in the water north of Route 1.
