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.

Modeling the EXPERIENCE of 2ft narrow gauge by REPLICATING the equipment.
(The greatest bane to creativity is preconception)
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.
Time for an update.
Bountyland Railway has taken delivery of caboose #308.
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!
