Just took a trip to Philadelphia and the snow up near the Susquehanna river was beautiful. Real fluffy and stuck in the trees, but the rails were much further apart!

Those are some wonderful photos, Brenden. Thank you for sharing them.

'scuse me Ed,

I saw the beautiful snow pictures and I guess I drifted off!

I can see why the museum is eager to construct a car shed. Getting everything under cover for the Maine winter seems like a good idea.

Wish I could get up there more often to help out. Maybe after I retire.

Great shots! Does the Hauling and Rigging Department now have a hot air balloon? As one can tell from some of the other threads here, obtaining the necessary "fuel" to operate one should be no problem. ;)

Brendan,I'm an old guy from the steam era. By what modern wizardry do you take these pictures? Are mini choppers available now to do such? Are you looking at a screen--maybe your Smartphone or iPhone screen--to see what view will be captured?

Have you ever in the past or do you plan in future to use it over a nudis........no, forget that last question please!

Couldn't keep that from bubbling up, but seriously, would appreciate a few words on how you do such great things!

Just because you can't see it doesn't mean it does not exist.

Hello Brendan,

Once again, beautiful pictures. I was just about to ask if this was some of your work:

http://youtu.be/l1oAglUxk-4    OK,I don't know what I'm doing wrong, but there is a really cool video on youtube
taken with one of those drone thingys of the W.W.&F. It's on page 8 under the heading of Wiscasset, Waterville and Farmington Railway.
The last photo answered that!

I get a "doesn't exist" message. Has anyone solved this problem? Searching for WW&F Railway doesn't seem to produce any drone shots, but I didn't check all 7 pages!

John,

Try spelling out "Wiscasset Waterville and Farmington Railway" and it will be found as the second entry on page 8.

I just looked again and it's still there. When I tried to share the thing by typing in the address, for some reason I also get that "doesn't exist" message.

Fantastic video.  I hope the "drone" will in the air for Victorian Christmas.  Maybe we can get some air time on TV, for all to see.
Title: Re: Sheepscot pictures for the away crowd.
Post by: Stewart "Start" Rhine on December 16, 2013, 09:27:32 PM
The quad copter visit was a special thing arranged by Stephen Hussar.  Trying it during Victorian Christmas wouldn't work since there was prep work setting the unit up and then extra time for arranging the scenes.  It does a beautiful job and it was interesting seeing the copter in action.  Some of the video was shot with the director/pilot in the back of the railcar, guiding the copter as the train ran behind us.  I think there will be another try at filming with it sometime next year.

We can make it even better ... how about an early 1930's Ford truck at the North Pole? Then it would be Snow, Santa, Steam and Vintage Steel.  After all, gotta get more dry wood up there before the first train.

Jeremy, the copter pilot/owner, would very much like to shoot some scenes with snow
on the ground, it all depends upon his schedule. He's got a young son at home, so his
weekends are precious.

Watch out or you'll have the Goodyear lawyers contacting us. When coming back from our newspaper printer one Wednesday years ago, I stopped in a pawnshop for a look see. When I walked out I heard a noise up above and looked skyward. There was a Goodyear blimp with its tail maybe 500 feet off the ground and the nose almost straight up. I bet those guys had a story to tell their grandchildren.

Rowmow MFG is the nation's foremost manufacturer of right-of-way (ROW) MOWing machines for two-foot gauge railroads. Headquartered in Waterford, Maine, it has an annual budget of thousands (of Yen) and is privately held.

ROWMOW Mfg. also carries 2' gauge line MOW jib cranes, track carts, tampers, as well as custom built-to-order transport equipment for the discriminating narrow gauge rail baron.  Worldwide distribution is available upon request;)

Jock,
  all kidding aside, when I created the mower car, I named it ROWMOW 1. It was then suggested I put a builders plate on it (they were half kidding). So I did. The mower car was built by the fictitious company, ROWMOW 1 MFG., Inc. And it has snowballed from there. All in good fun.

Brendan had gotten the Kubota out so he could relocate his trailer.
Once he had the trailer where he wanted, he started playing. (could not figure out how to rhyme that)

 Brendan, The pictures of Carlton/Trout Brook location are just great.  The timber looks like some could be sold as saw timber.  Next winter would be a great time to start.     Fred L. Kuhns

If we had our own sawmill, (hint hint), we could start making boards and beams for the carbarn.  Do we have a design finalized yet?   Blueprints, etc.  ??????

If you close the windows and snuggle up in the front corner of the cab it isn't too bad. Fortunately there's plenty of heat to dry you out.
Leaning out of the cab on the push north isn't too nice without the awning. The roof drips right on your head.
I feel for the brakeman more on the push up to the end of track, though. Been there, done that. It's not much fun especially if you wear glasses or it's chilly out.

Since WW&F will be running two steamers soon, is your coal order now bigger?
C&TS gets a similar semi load every week or two.
Title: Re: Sheepscot pictures for the away crowd.
Post by: James Patten on August 26, 2015, 12:57:10 PM
With #10 we usually go about 2 years or so between coal deliveries.  I think this time we went 2 years and 3 months.

With 2 steamers active for a while (#10 will eventually need to go down for repairs) I'm sure the pile will disappear much faster.  And even #9 alone will consume it faster.

Looks like a run of the mine load like they get up at Conway. Where'd this load get sourced from and what type (Pocahontas, Pennsylvania, etc) is it?

Post by: Jason M Lamontagne on August 26, 2015, 06:30:31 PM
We got this coal contact from Conway scenic- same stuff in theory.

PA coal.  Think run of the mine would have much larger chunks.  This rated at 2X6- though there's larger pieces.  I presume that's on account of holes in the screen...

Probably Pittsburgh lump if the sizer was 2x6.

Hopefully it doesn't end up looking like this in about 2 months.

We had a lot of problems with iron in our PA coal about 5 years ago. Burned great, but smoked like heck and sometimes left a few problems when it came to cleaning out the fire. Great coal if you're not worried about smoke, though.

I seem to recall a line from one of the late Fred Dibnah's BBC documentaries that "good steam coal is the size of a man's fist", or something to that effect.
Title: Re: Sheepscot pictures for the away crowd.
Post by: Gordon Cook on August 27, 2015, 04:58:01 PM
The stuff we had was too small and would clump if you didn't sprinkle it on one shovel at a time. Otherwise it worked pretty well, at times too well and the pop would go off even with the injector on.  You had to work to make it smoke a lot. Passengers in the open car on the way north appreciated that.
The fire needed to be cleaned out thoroughly after a run. If you didn't the next run would be frustrating, as the ash in the bottom kept the fresh coal from burning the way it should. Dumping more coal on didn't do much at that point and the gauge would sink slowly as we worked north up to Alna.

Every time we get a new load of coal it's a new routine. Keeps it interesting, that's for sure.

So, these ties were brought over from the parking lot stash, are going to TOM for SWW track work?
Eventually using the end of the Woods Spur as team track sounds totally ideal.

Hope Kubota injector system redo cures its hiccups.
Both it and Case-y are invaluable for continuing WW&F improvements.

Carb rebuild kit for my little, tired weed whacker should fix it.
It's weed time here in windy Abq, with TV-shown tumbleweeds piled roof-high, yard deep.

As we get the sawmill/shingle mill built, and we continue to clear the ROW down the mountain, a timber transfer may well be needed up at the sawmill to unload the logs for the mill.  A smaller but just as neat gantry system would come in very useful.  Start you're just way ahead of your time :)

I would want an engineered structure. Not something that will crumple and trap the operator.

By the way, trailer works good loading the excavator, but the dozer was much trickier. I like loading that over the end..

I would say turning Case-y's steel treads is not only more difficult than steering soft tires, the wooden decks would be splintered over time.
But the use and convenience factors are strong.
Go figure.
I also support adding a strong roll cage, especially along the coming hilly, northern ROW "washout zone" work.
Yes, we only have ONE Mike the Super Grader!

Pictures taken during and after the February 12/13, 2017 blizzard. The Sheepscot area received about two feet of snow during the storm. Most of this snow has already melted away during the last two weeks.

Wow,  All the pictures of the two locos, so many cars and all and switching going on.... looks just like a real paying railroad.... well I guess it is a real railroad and it does pay its way as long as we have so many talented and generous volunteers.

And the Blizzard.  In looking at the recovery pictures the thing that struck me is that it is a good thing we have Casey the railroad bulldozer to help with all that snow.  Boy, that is a lot of snow to push around.

Wow! Those snowy pictures make me happy I only had 12" to 18" of snow here in Western Mass. Great job clearing out that snow.
