ORGANIZATION: Wiscasset, Waterville, and Farmington Railway Museum

  • A group opportunity. Invite your friends.
WW&F Work Weekend
Join our crew of volunteers as we rebuild the historic WW+F Railway.

For over twenty years, volunteers from around the country and overseas travel to the Museum in late April and over the Columbus Day weekend to help work on numerous projects at the Museum. For Fall 2023, the focus will be a giant "Lining Party" where large crews will be moving along the railroad and bending the iron into correct alignment with large pry bars. Likely there will also be smaller projects as well.

Of course, visitors are welcome to just watch & see how our railroad is maintained and grows!

Work usually begins early in the morning, between 7 and 8 AM, although people arrive at all times throughout the day. The Museum supplies its volunteers with lunch and supper on these days. The work ends between 5 and 6 PM.

RSVPs are greatly appreciated (but not required.)

About Wiscasset, Waterville, and Farmington Railway Museum


97 Cross Road, PO Box 242, Alna, ME 04535, US

Mission Statement

The Wiscasset, Waterville & Farmington Railway Museum, Inc., is a nonprofit organization established in 1989 to acquire, preserve, and restore the operation of narrow gauge railroads and equipment which operated in the Sheepscot Valley and on other roads and to establish a Museum for the display of artifacts for enlightenment and education of the general public concerning the social and economic impact of railroads on the communities served.


The WW&F Railway Museum is a 501(c)(3) non-profit, dedicated to the display and preservation of the two-foot gauge Wiscasset, Waterville, and Farmington Railway; and its predecessor roads, the WW&F Railroad and the Wiscasset and Quebec Railroad. To that end, we attempt to replicate history as best we can, through the use of steam locomotives, hand signals, and the methods used by people on the original railroad, as much as possible. We are entirely volunteer-run.

Volunteers are a critical part of our operation. It is the volunteers that work on our projects, that meet and greet our visitors, and that operate our trains. We have no paid staff.

We encourage new volunteers to come and find a place with us. Because of the variety of things we do, and the potential dangers of working around railroad equipment, we require that new volunteers only do work at the railroad when there are longer-term volunteers around, at least for the first couple of months, so that we can "show you the ropes".

To volunteer, just show up. All ages, abilities, and interests are welcome.
