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

Charlie
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.

The used air compressor puts out more air 185, CFM ( cubic foot minute)

The inside of the sheathing needs to be coated with fire retardant before it is installed on the bridge.

Hi Paul, Entire ROW to 218 is far from being complete as far as cutting the tree's.

Form the south headed north, Section 4 up to location 9 is complete. Plus a very short distance more. Location 9 is the end of planned track work during Fall Work Weekend.  We  stop putting brush to the fire's around 2PM. This is to give the fire's time to burn down before we leave around 4PM. This year we continued to cut tree's and brush past 2PM, so we have many brush piles still waiting to be burned. Both on the south and north ends of the ROW.

Section 6 Location 9 to Section 6 location 13 (trout brook) have not been cleared.  Just a short distance at Location 13, the south side of Trout Brook has been cleared   for work on the south bridge abutment.

All tree's and brush has been cleared in section 7, Bridge site to 218.

We can only burn when ground is covered with snow. During 2017 by the end of February  there was no snow.

Bottom end of the grade in the cut. No level ground to "dump" the ties (for later pickup)that are removed.   Bill, where you have been change out the joint bars.

Leave Sheepcott headed north, go around the first curve and you are headed down Daves Grade. At end of this grade ROW passes under the large electric transmission line.
