Title: Donated Pavilion from Maine Maritime Museum - Official Disassembly Thread
Post by: John Kokas on October 16, 2018, 12:48:41 AM
Tuesday and Wednesday this week our crew is meeting at the Maine Maritime Museum in Bath in order to disassemble a pavilion that they have gifted us, thanks to facilitation by Dave Allan (our bridge contractor).  Meet time is 830; park in their main lot by the road. Please seek me out and check in with me upon arrival.

Pavilion 30x80 wooden structure with metal roof on scissor trusses, slated to become event space at AC.

This is wonderful news as the structure we are receiving is in great shape and will serve multiple functions at Alna Center.  I'm volunteering to help build a BBQ pit alongside - anybody want to join me?

Terrific photos, Brendan.  Thanks for posting them!  Fred's reaction in the 3rd photo is the same as mine!

Great pics.
Youz guyz waste NO time!
This is a Maine version of a western US pole barn.
Those trussed rafters are interesting.
Hope you can take 'em down and transport them as whole units.
The roof sheets, and the lumber in general, look in great shape.

Nice to see some of Bath Iron Works, where my ship USS Mansfield DD728 was built in 1945.

Where will the Pavilion pieces be stored until its new site is decided and construction starts?

Boy, it didn’t take long to put that new forklift attachment to good use.

You certainly made short work of taking down the rafters.

You guys are better equipped than the men putting up the trusses in the development across the road.

In an episode of "Maine Cabin Builders" the pavilion was seen for about 3/10 of a second - just long enough to recognize
 where that is. Certainly not long enough to say "I know where that is."

Wow!  Tremendous effort there.  A job done very well.  Thanks for the photos, Brendan.

And thanks to Maine Maritime Museum and our volunteers and donors for this opportunity.

Nice job guys, I wish I could be up there to help out.  Is the plan to store the materials up at Alna Center?
Title: Re: Donated Pavilion from Maine Maritime Museum - Official Disassembly Thread
Post by: Paul Uhland on October 31, 2018, 11:42:53 PM
That was my recent question, a lotta excellent wood. Why not bring it directly to Alna Center, out of everybody's way, right where it will be used?
Title: Re: Donated Pavilion from Maine Maritime Museum - Official Disassembly Thread
Post by: Brendan Barry on November 01, 2018, 01:39:14 AM
There is no room to store the building in Alna Center. All the available flat ground is covered with the ballast pile for next spring's work weekend.

TOM? or unparkable parking lot?

Keep the parkable parking lot open?

So when was it built in the first place? I do not remember it there when I docked at the museum last in 2011 and all I remember is the sculpture.

It isn't very old.  They erected it to work on their sailing (the Mary E?) and had to take it down per city planning board and shoreland zone ordinance.

Pavilion disassembly was finished today. We just have to bring the trailer load of trusses and forklift back to Sheepscot.

We own 23 acres at the T.O.M. Quite a lot of FLAT land where a car barn could be put for flat cars and box cars. We do need more car shelter. Leaving wooden cars outside can prove costly. Three tracks can still be put in a Thirty Ft. wide building only that it should be as long as our car-barn is now.

Post by: Wayne Laepple on November 02, 2018, 02:52:28 PM
Yes, even an open-sided building would serve to keep rain and snow off wooden rolling stock. And if properly designed, such a building could start out as a 40 or 50-foot long building and be added to as necessary, just like what was done with the Sheepscot shop. Such a building at TOM could also serve as a place to hide the basket cases and chicken coops.

Post by: Fred Morse on November 02, 2018, 04:51:23 PM
Or people when it rains. We've been talking about shelter at T.O.M. for sometime now even a small station. It's very good land, but we had to stop clearing it as so many other projects have come up. If we ever lose the right to use the Albee field we'll be very glad we have that land.

Well if there is going to be a Saw Mill that was never there & a Shingle Mill that was never there,
a Corn Shed that was never at TOM would make a good addition.
Covering cars is a good idea.

I would donate a CAN of corn

See, I think it is the best thing for the future... Just imagine the events that could happen, from concerts, bbq, and ice cream socials. Not to mention as a great place for Santa to reside. I know it does work for an historical building but who knows what mock sides could be built.

I see an immediate need to provide a  better venue at Alna Center to increase attendance at social , musical functions there. The MMM shelter would do this, being modified if needed to attract bands and other entertainment to draw and serve increasing WW&F ridership.

Fred's correct--wooden vehicles need as much weather protection as possible. For now, large tarps, used by 2926 and 3751 rebuilders, having past shelter problems, would do the job much cheaper, particularly during the railroad's off=season, if and until other arrangements are possible.
