That water filled space on the side of the boiler is often called a "Wet Leg"
which may not be in Alain's dictionary.

Don't junk it -- give it a coat of varnish and hang it on the wall and call it
what it is -- a work of art!

Please e-mail me. I seem to be having trouble contacting you.

Dampers are made for top of chimneys that can be operated from inside to save energy.

James & Bill
Want to feel old AND proud - read the old Newsletters as I have.
Fantastic accomplishments by a dedicated, dynamic group of people.

Was that the reroute shown on North Woods Law?

Seeing that the WW&F benefits from donations from other organizations - might at least a token be sent.
Not to set a precedent. But a timing appears to be essential.

The name "Hats & Totes" tickles a feeling (that is less than a memory) but as I said
it was near half a century ago.

Of course I wear my WW&F hat when I go to train related activities.

In Allan's Mom's pix where the crew was unloading rail - that green corduroy cap looks familiar.
I have one I got back in '72 or '73 made by a husband and wife team (I was told in Maine? i do not remember where)
It is lined and has ear flaps. Mine is Burgundy.  I was also told they were making them for RR men.
We lived in CT at the time. A customer of mine used to visit Maine.
The question is - is someone still making them or is that green one that old also.

After reading the old News Letters (circa 2000) 600 feet seems to be a very ambitious
project for one (?) day.
Will you be putting down fabric? Isn't that where the track crew back then complained of soft ground?
Jason you were leading then.

Don't know if it would help others "from away", but if the photographer could put a card with the
"location" number in the pic, or in the caption, it would help visualize what is going on.
I know it is one more thing for overworked Mike but would help in the archives 20-30 years in the future.
