Maine 2-Foot Winter 2020: The Grand Reunion
Jan 18 - Feb 9, 2020
Wiscasset, Waterville & Farmington Railway Museum
97 Cross Road, Alna, ME
The Wiscasset, Waterville and Farmington Railway, Maine Narrow Gauge Railroad Company, 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 another legendary two-foot guest 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.
