To Paul and other readers. We are now talking about building more than one track. A south facing spur track on the west side of the ROW that would go to Brain's shop.

Years ago on the east side of the Row, the Row was widened for a passing track. This was never built.

Now we are talking about building a track (not sure if it will be a siding or spur) on the west side of the Row. This west track would start off of the spur into Brain's shop.

The rail is there. It fell off the wood blocks and is now hidden in the weeds.

When I work at museum and camp, I stay at Chewonki Campground.
Campground is south of Wiscasset behind the local airport.

Interesting. Ossipee Music Festival is in West Ossipee. The rr station still stands. In fact all three rr stations in town still stand.
I live in Center Ossipee.

Just looked at the Tamper photo on page 2 of the newest Newsletter.

Can you find  the work that ROW-MOW did on the Tamper while it was down for rebuilding?

New Hydraulic Motor also has a higher travel speed when you throttle up the engine.
