A two-foot gauge carrier railroad, the WW&F Railway operated from 1894 to 1933. The line was finally established and ran from Wiscasset, Maine, north to Albion and Winslow. A museum was established in 1989 to preserve this part of the state’s history, and to let visitors discover this exciting bit of the past.

The WW&F Railway Museum is located at an old station by the name of Sheepscot Station, in Alna, Maine. The mainline track runs north on the original roadbed. The museum attempts to present the picture of history as best they can, by using steam locomotives and even original hand signals from the original running of this railroad.
