Remarks & Notes 
Steamy Sheepscot, Maine. For the first time in 82 years, a new day dawns with two steam locomotives being prepared for operation on the Wiscasset Waterville & Framington Railway. In the foreground, newly restored WW&F #9, gets ready for her very first day of passenger operations, while just behind her, the old, reliable WW&F #10 does what she's been doing for more than a dozen years. This scene was photographed on the morning of December 19th, 2015 as the WW&F Railway Museum prepared for its annual Victorian Christmas event. In past years, there was only one train shuttling Christmas revelers back and forth to Alna Center for a visit with Santa Claus, but today, there will be two. With 2 steam engines and one diesel in the rotation, the two trains will break all of the museum's past records for single-day passenger loads, and probably absolutely shatter any record held by the original WW&F back in the early 20th century. The official passenger count this day: 1,558 souls. Victorian Christmas just keeps on growing and growing....and so does the WW&F Museum.
