Actually, Wayne has a great point about life at the WW&F. 

Life on the Railroad in Maine always seems a little more crisp, the colors a little brighter when the steam is viewed against a deep blue sky or on a cold morning when there is so much steam the locomotive almost disappears, the smells of the coal smoke and hot oils more fragrant, the hissing, thumping and chuffing pleasantly sharp to the ear, the warmth of the boiler on a damp day and of course, the taste of a comforting hot meal at noon or at the end of a work weekend day.  Life doesn't get any better than this.

Amen.

Unless things have changed (which happens about every 15 minutes), there's only two stoves.

I thought it was every five minutes. ::)

Quite a bit of progress occurring in the shop. The flatcar is nicely taking shape.
