Description

PLEASE NOTE:
These tickets are NOT for "Victorian Christmas" or "Steam and Sleighs".
The "Two-Foot Winter" is a high-end special event for railroad photography enthusiasts. It has extremely limited capacity and is not geared for the general public.

Reservations for "Victorian Christmas" and "Steam and Sleighs" will become available on Nov 3., 2019 at 8am. Note that we expect these two public events to sell out very quickly.

Please consider visiting us during the 2020 operating season (May-October weekends) including our many special events planned, such as "Easter Eggspress", "Mother's Day Tea", Evening talks, Alna Day, "Music on the Railway" (4 evening concerts), "Ice Cream Social", "Stuff a Boxcar" (bring a food donation as your ticket to ride the train), "Annual Picnic", "Pumpkin Picking Trains", and (in late 2020) "Christmas Tree Trains". 
We hope to see you soon on the Narrow Gauge!

 


 

The Wiscasset, Waterville and Farmington Railway, Maine Narrow Gauge Railroad Company, Boothbay Railway Village and Maine Locomotive and Machine Works are proud to offer a major photographic event: Maine Two-Foot Winter 2020.  It will be The Grand Reunion of equipment which hasn't been together in nearly a century.  Locomotives: WW&F 9, B&SR 7, MRR 3 and SD Warren 2 will join a special collection of rolling stock including the Parlor Car Rangeley, F&M coach 2, B&SR coach 16 Mt Pleasant, W&Q coach 3, SR&RL combine 14, and many more.  Each of the 3 original railroads represented by this equipment will be highlighted for historically based photographic opportunities all weekend.  This program is being offered for two weekends in early 2020:  January 18-19, and February 8-9 2020.

Your purchase of a weekend pass for $400 gains you access to Saturday and Sunday's main program, which commences with firing up the steam locomotives at 6:00 AM Saturday.  The operating program will be divided into a morning and an afternoon segment for each day, each segment highlighting different original Maine two-foot railroads including the B&SR, Monson, and WW&F Railroads.  In addition to all the WW&F's hot photographic locations, we will have some limited and special opportunities to explore the WW&F's new "Mountain Extension," a prime and beautiful example of narrow gauge engineering from the 1890s.  Attendance is limited to 25 each weekend.

Once you've purchased a weekend pass, look for two promo codes included on the e-tickets sent to you.  These codes will allow you access to purchase two very special add-ons. 

 The first add-on is the "SR&RL" Friday, for $150, where WW&F 9 will be backdated to display its days as SR&RL 6.  The SR&RL Parlor Car Rangeley will be taken out, along with F&M coach 2, SR&RL combine 14 and other equipment to round out scenes reminiscent of Maine's historically largest two foot gauge system.  

The second add-on is the Saturday Evening Photo Session, directed by Stephen Hussar, for $100.  A spectacular Hussar session as usual, our cinematographer extraordinaire will have a lot more to work with, given the influx of equipment as a result of our current partnerships.

To purchase add-on dates, choose the date of the original ticket you purchased.  The next page will ask if you have a promo code; enter the code received in the confirmation email to unlock the two special add-ons.
