WW&F Forney #9 (7/8ths)

Accucraft Trains - WW&F Forney #9

 

The Portland Company constructed 0-4-4 Forney #5 in 1891 for the Sandy River Railroad.  The locomotive was named "N.B. Neal" and operated this way until 1908 when the Sandy River, Franklin & Megantic, Philips & Rangeley, along with their respective subsidiary railroads merged to form the Sandy River & Rangeley Lakes.  At this time the locomotive was renumbered to SR&RL #6.  In 1925 the locomotive was sold the Kennebec Central, becoming their #4.  She was again sold in 1933 to the Wiscasset, Waterville & Farmington as their #9.  After the WW&F railroad was abandoned in 1936-37, it was purchased and stored near Putnam, Connecticut. 

 

In December 1994, an agreement was reached with the estate for WW&F #9 and its return to Maine for eventual restoration.  Over the course of several years the locomotive was restored and is now featured in regular excursion over a restored section of the railroad.
