Throughout the second weekend in August, you can visit the WW&F Railway for its Annual Picnic, which it has been hosting since 1992 to showcase what the Railway has to offer.
This year’s picnic, called “Little Trains and Littler Trains,” will highlight model railways with two different displays: at Sheepscot Station, the Great Falls Model Railroad Club will be displaying two layouts and have select items available for purchase; at Alna Center Station, the association of 16mm Modellers will be displaying an outdoor, live steam display.
While visiting Alna Center, you are also invited to see period and modern radios operated by members of the Lincoln Co. Amateur Radio Club. There will be demonstrations of vintage morse code sounders and 1920s broadcast band radios. You’ll even be able to send a Radiogram to a friend! The station will operate with a special event call sign of W1W.
Additionally, the Railway will be hosting a Ford Model A show at Sheepscot on Saturday, Aug. 12. It would not be a picnic without food and Wicked Tater will be on hand with its food truck at Sheepscot to help keep everyone well fed. You can get your tickets ahead of time at wwfry.org. Or buy tickets in person beginning at 10 a.m. Saturday, Aug. 12, and 11 a.m. on Sunday, Aug. 13. For more information, visit wwfry.org or call 207-882-4193.
