“Rebuilding Maine History” Maine’s Wiscasset, Waterville, and Farmington (WW&F) Railway was a two-foot “narrow” gauge common carrier railroad that operated from 1894 until 1933. The line ran from Wiscasset in the south, to Albion and Winslow in the north, never making it to either Waterville or Farmington. The Great Depression brought about the railroad’s scrapping in 1937. The WW&F Railway Museum was founded in 1989 to restore and rebuild the original railroad. Since then we’ve restored 2.5 miles of railroad, rebuilt several original railroad cars, and are restoring a steam locomotive. Today you can climb aboard our train for a ride back in time.
