WW&F readies for work weekends, Easter trains

Tue, 03/30/2021 - 1:45pm

The WW&F Railway at 97 Cross Road, Alna will be running Springtime Eggspress Trains with SeaLyon Farm April 3 and 10. Much like the Easter Eggspress Trains the railway has run in years past, these trains will include an Easter Egg Hunt at the Railway’s Alna Center station.

New this year is a farmstand providing farm products and baked goods along with food by Grandpa’s Kitchen. Capacity of each train is 50 passengers, so get your tickets soon at wwfry.org

For the rest of spring, “You’ve Been Workin’ on the Railroad” volunteer work sessions will be held each Saturday. The work sessions will cover all manner of railway work, from painting and cleaning to track maintenance and brush clearing. All are welcome to attend and those with no particular railway experience, but a keen interest, are especially welcome to come learn what it takes to keep a railway running. There is no charge to attend volunteer work sessions. Advance registration is requested for planning purposes. Register and learn more at wwfry.org
