Hi Al,

I apologize - I did not have you down as a museum member. You have now been granted access to the Newsletter (and other members-only) sections of the Forum.

[Moderator's Note]
I split this off the "Engine Wiper" thread since it seemed to get unnoticed in that discussion.

Sorry, I was going by memory with the numbers. I don't have the final lengths of the two approach spans.

Re "crossing" - No crossing. Those planks were to protect the track when the forklift lifted that side of the bridge.

Re abutments - The 47' bridge will be centered across the 74' gap, supported by two piers. There will be two 12' approach spans - one on each side of the bridge. This design was chosen to minimize environmental impact, and keep the piers out of the brook waterway.

Museum members (once I find out about them) get access to the Newsletters and other special discussion areas on the main forum page.

Kevin - welcome aboard - I have activated your privileges.

If there are other museum members who do not have Newsletter access, please let me know.

But then they probably would have identified you as Michael J. Fox!

Aw, the fun's over. They have correctly identified the individual in the photo as Frank Zappa.  ;D


(Just kidding, but they did fix the caption; and added some new photos of the bridge.)

There is a "ranking" system in the forum software that classifies members by the quantity of their posts. When the forum was set up many years ago, these categories were created. They really don't mean anything; it's just a fun way to keep the board railroad-themed.

I gave Linda a set of fairly old glass Christmas tree ornaments. Reportedly, some belong to my great grandmother (whose husband was the Conductor for the Woodstock RR in Vt.) If not from our target era, they will be close. She was going to set them aside for tree trimming this year.

I may have confused folks by adding the 2018 section. (It's easier for me to do that now rather than later.) Be sure to click the Nov/Dec 2017 link.
