Thanks Ray.
And Charley, thanks for posting that nice shot of Alna Center. Until recently, AC was the north end of WW&F Rail Museum's operations, a bit over 2 miles of 2 foot gauge track from the other (south) end at Sheepscot.

2014 saw the line extended to a place called "Top of the Mountain". The museum line is (re)built on a section of the original WW&F alignment.

The neat rail car began life as a model-T Ford. It has a retractable pivot for turning the car at any location.

Here's a Google Street View of the south end of WW&F Rail Museum's line, Sheepscot. This is the museum's base of operations and the location of their shop, engine and car storage, gift shop, museum building......EVERYTHING.

Alna Center is a pass track and small station and that's about it. Sheepscot Station is the small structure nearest us on the right. Note how similar it is the station at AC.

Operation is "out and back" with a run around track at each end. There are no facilities for turning engines but Forneys run backward just fine.

Rather than use the storage building as our station we may build our own version of Sheepscot station, as shown here.

Another view.
Note that it is quite small to fit in with the miniature trains but still large enough to work in.

These WW&F stations had no ceilings so there is plenty of stand-up room in the center. The sign above the door is actually part of the door.

Height is OK at the windows (where the operator's desk would be) when one is seated.

Tho not yet completed, the car is operational and will be finished by the BLRY work crew (me) in the company shop (under the big oak tree---LOL!!)

No computer drawings this time. It's finally here!
