Your Cultural Destination: Rail Babes

© Brian Vigue

A generation of warriors yields to a generation of workers, who then yields to a generation of artists. At a time in Waterville's future, a passenger train crosses the Kennebec on a crystalline trestle held aloft by steel goddesses. Passengers look to the left and see the Hathaway Hotel beyond Bridge Street. To their right, an ancient mill reclaimed by nature and turned bird refuge. In seconds they'll be arriving at the station near the Head of Falls ampitheater. Passengers marvel at the repurposing of miles of old freight track sculpted into modern works of art standing fifty feet above the river. Every artist in town must have had a hand in this renovation.
