Remarks & Notes 
SR&RL #6 Returns after 96 years! Just an hour or so before sunset, WW&F Locomotive #9, sits dressed as her former self, Sandy River & Rangeley Lakes #6, posing for photographs while sitting at the station in the Sheepscot Yard, with SR&RL Combine #14 right behind her. This was the first time the engine had sported the SR&RL lettering in 96 years. This locomotive, which is the oldest surviving Maine 2-Footer, served 4 of Maine's 24" gauge, common carrier railroads, during a 40+ year career, stretching from 1891 to 1933. She was saved largely as a result of the efforts of Connecticut's Ramsdell family, which purchased the engine when the WW&F went out of business, and stored the engine on their farm for over half a century. This engine received a Smithsonian-quality restoration by the WW&F Museum, and returned to operation in 2015, 82 years after she last ran right here where you see her.
