Remarks & Notes 
Dreaming of a White Christmas. Every year, on the Saturday before Christmas, the WW&F hosts its annual Victorian Christmas event. While everyone hopes for a snowy scene, the reality is that mid-December is often just a bit too early in the season for the white stuff. This year, a driving rainstorm on the Friday before the event left us with lots of mud and generally gloomy skies. Still, the hardy Mainers turned out in droves and a full hour before train operations were scheduled to begin, there was a line on the platform. Rather than keep the people waiting, the museum staff loaded up the first train and headed for Alna Center, where Santa Claus would be waiting for the kids. Here's a shot of that first train returning to Sheepscot for another load. The previous day's rains had clearly left their mark on Humanson Brook....which was "hummin" to say the least. Note the non-regulation headgear worn by the front and rear brakemen. Victorian Christmas is about the only time when a few of the WW&F's "authenticity rules" are relaxed.
