Museum Discussion / Re: Outside the box idea for revenue
« on: July 09, 2020, 02:04:50 PM »
If this is spot for outside box thinking personally felt that the organization should rework it's youtube channel and start doing a series of videos and talks discussing history and ongoing projects.  These types of videos are very popular and some great examples are the Tank Museum of Bovington in England and Lawrie's Mechanical Marvels:

With all media people that come to shoot think some might help in creating these types of video's which would serve purpose of some revenue from ad's as well as getting word out on the railroad to others around the world.

Volunteers / A big thank you back to those at Sheepscot
« on: October 14, 2019, 09:20:51 PM »
While it was fun working with everyone this weekend and to see the progress that was accomplished I did want to make a post to thank all those back at home base for taking the time to volunteer and help keep the rest of us fed and cared for when we are there.  My first day I saw one volunteer who was up all night working on food to help support us that day. I did manage to see some of the ladies preparing trays of food while walking through the house Sunday afternoon on my way out and did thank them as their support and effort really go a long way on days like Saturday when we are cold, wet and miserable and can at least partake in some hot food and forget our aches and pains for a while.  Again a big heart felt thank you from this volunteer for your time and effort!

So at a future date will you pour a concrete floor for the rest of the car barn?

Looking at picture from the bridge I am assuming that from bridge south is getting a coating of fill?

Seeing as there will be a lot of people who did the work last year it seems like there is a very good chance of rail being laid quickly.  Will there be any staging of any ballast cars to follow the spiking crew?

I do plan to attend on Fri., Sat. and Sun. I will try doing spiking when I can but my hands do not seem to last long in gripping hammer after a few.  I do have experience from last year working with the gantry system and laying rail.

General Discussion / Idea for FWW
« on: July 19, 2019, 08:24:45 AM »
I was on the WW&F youtube page the other day which could really use more content.  With all the work that is coming up for the FWW has anyone considered setting up some camera's to do time lapse of the work from a few different spots?

Joe realize how important getting the mainline fixed is and finishing up ballast work is on mountain and can try and make it up there for a Sat.  Sadly work keeps me busy during the week.  if anyone else from southern NH or MA area wants to commute up?

Excited for this Fall.  Is the plan to add some stone and regrade the remaining surface to the bridge?  That area seemed a bit swampy when took a walk down there.

Glad to hear the last of the ballast got down.  Sadly I could only volunteer for the Sat this time.  Did they manage to get the tamper running again for Sunday?
