The Mission of the WW&F Railway Museum, is to restore and reconstruct the operation and equipment of the original railroad as completely as possible. To that end, we have begun construction of an exact replica WW&F Ry steam locomotive, Wiscasset, Waterville & Farmington Ry No.7.
WW&F No.7 (Baldwin Const. No 31692), was a 28-ton 2-4-4T forney built in 1907 for the WW&F Railway. The locomotive burned in a roundhouse fire and was scrapped in 1937. In keeping with the tradition of giving new motive power the next available consecutive number, this all-new engine will become WW&F Ry No.11.
This website is very much a work in progress, but will serve as a gathering place for those currently working on, and anyone interested in working on this unique and exciting project.
While the main part of the project will begin after No.9 is completed, the effort to "build 11" has already begun. The scale and scope of the job necessitated ramping up the design process, and building several components in tandem with the restoration of No 9. However, in spite of being on the "back-burner," No.11 has immediate needs.
