We have come to the north end of the Wiscasset, Waterville & Farmington Railroad. We stopped for pictures.





We are truly at the north end of the Wiscasset, Waterville & Farmington Railroad. We would back to a more level spot to turn the 1925 Ford Railbus. Now we will watch it be turned.













That is how you turn a 1925 Ford Railbus. We would head back south to stop for photos at the creek bridge.





We ran through Alna Center on the way to the bridge. The three photographers got off to get pictures.
