someone showed up with the 5-10 MILLION dollars that it would take the WW&F to build to Wiscasset....
(and that is a big if)
Then we would likely build to a terminal on Railroad Ave. in Wiscasset that is alongside the Maine Central. The site of the MEC station is now in the middle of an access road to the sewer treatment plant. There would still be a little trestle work to connect the upper yard to the station site.
And if we wanted, we could build a small demonstration trestle near Route 1 (Behind Red's Eats) and put a car on it or a similar display.
Building across the Maine Central and directly to Route 1 would not really add anything but a major amount of regulations, construction costs, and ongoing maintenance. Then crossing Route 1 would bring its own challenges to get to the site of the wharf.
Until then, while we're waiting for that check, we could really use everyone's help building the Trout Brook Bridge: https://fundrazr.com/NarrowBridgeAhead
which is a far more obtainable and realistic goal.
