Jeff the 2x4's just haven't been cut to the right height for the backside of the truss roof yet. The roofs over the trusses slopes to the outside of the bridge.

Some more pictures I took Sunday morning.

The museum purchased a 10,000 pound capacity forklift this week. The impetus for the forklift purchase was the bridge project but there are plenty of other things we could use a big forkift for around shop.

Work and Events / Head Tide trail bridges
« on: September 25, 2017, 04:48:41 PM »
Steve Lennox led a crew this sumer to replace the trail bridges on the right of way north of RT. 218 in Head Tide.

First bridge in from Rt. 218. The Sheepscot River is just off to the right. This is the area the museum salvaged a coupler out of the river from a derailed flatcar.



Looking the opposite way back to rt. 218.  The river is on the other side of the trees.

I meant to post this picture yesterday and forgot.  As Bill said the freight house floor was insulated Wednesday morning so we can heat the building. This is a project that has been put off a couple times and we are making a commitent to the gift shop crew to get heat in the building this fall.
