Ford Model T Railcar at the WW&F Railway Museum
This Ford Model T inspection vehicle was built by the Monson Railroad in
Monson, Maine. It was loaned out by the Boothbay Railway Village to the
WW&F for one of their big open house events in August of 2002. More on the

The Wiscasset, Waterville, and Farmington Railway was a two-foot gauge
common carrier railroad that operated in the early part of the 1900's, up
until 1933 when the railroad ceased operations. The line ran from Wiscasset
in the south, to Albion and Winslow in the north. The Museum is located at
the site of the old Sheepscot station, with mainline track running north
from Cross Road, on the original roadbed.
They are laying track like there's no tomorrow, and have gone past the next
station in Alna Center which has been recreated with a run-around so that
they can finally run with the engine in the front both ways. Another
fantastic place for the whole family. Filmed in August 2002. More info on

The Model T was manufactured between 1908 and 1927, and was know by various
names including Tin Lizzie, Flivver, T‑Model Ford, or just 'T'.
The Model T set 1908 as the historic year that the automobile became
popular. It is generally regarded as the first affordable automobile, the
car that opened travel to the common middle-class American; some of this
was because of Ford's innovations, including assembly line production
instead of individual hand crafting.
On May 26, 1927, Henry Ford watched the 15 millionth Model T Ford roll off
the assembly line at his factory in Highland Park, Michigan.
