The 14 truck loads of ballast at Alna Center were consolidated into single pile this morning to make room for Santa.

You can see all the piles spread out behind 52 and the dozer.


Pavilion disassembly was finished today. We just have to bring the trailer load of trusses and forklift back to Sheepscot.

Fred leaving Maine Maritime with the last load of lumber.

The trusses and forklift sitting where the pavilion used to be.

There is no room to store the building in Alna Center. All the available flat ground is covered with the ballast pile for next spring's work weekend.

Tuesday and Wednesday's progress pictures.

This week's pavilion work.

Work and Events / B&SR boxcar 56
« on: October 18, 2018, 10:48:15 PM »
Ownership of B&SR boxcar 56 has been transferred from Maine Narrow Gauge to the WW&F. A crew went down to Portland last week to clean out and stabilize the car for the truck trip up to Sheepscot. Car 56 was one of two B&SR boxcars equipped with additional side doors/windows to move cattle. The plan is to restore 56 to the car's original B&SR condition at some point in the future after the present backlog of shop projects clears up.

Arriving at the railroad this morning.

Parked in front of the carbarn.

Moving 56 to the ramp track in Portland last week.

We also prepped B&SR boxcar 50 for the trip up to Sheepscot. More on 50 when the car arrives in Sheepscot.
