I may find a way to put the map on here. I need to tweak it a little though.

If I read Mike's posts correctly, with both permit sections 2 and 3 complete we are good all the way to the bridge.  I also believe he said we can't lay track in section 2 until 3 is done as the heavy equipment will have no means of access.  Did I get this right?
No. The first section is done. Locations 1, 2 and 3. That is the big pipe, and 18" and a 12". Section 2 consists of one location. 4. The slide. Section 3 and section 5 have more pipes. A 12", 18" 48" and a 24" locations 5, 8, 9 &10.
Location 6 is what we call the pinch point, which needs stabalizing. Location 7 is a 12" cross pipe, that will be included in section 4, due to the proximity to the brook.

Then there is about 500 feet of ditch to repair and armor.

Oh, and then there is a bridge..plenty of work to do yet.

Plus more pipe work north of that..all takes time. And permits..

Lets see. There was a potato house and a saw mill. There was also some kind of feed or flower mill, or both.

Catch oil in it and I would no longer classify it as food grade  ;)

Weeks Mills had a Wye, and he should have said Weeks Mills to Winslow section was built with removed trackage.

I am going north with the Brookville, unless a stone train is running, to put the finishing touch on a plaque, plus measure a repair location.

Sounds like a great time.

Jason reports and supplied the pictures..

"Today we laid out 4 rows of cribbing, carefully leveled them, and placed the 4 chords in preparation of building the trusses.  They’ll be built on their side, prepped, and tipped inward until upright.  then the floor timbers will be brought in and attached from underneath"

I wish I knew you were there. I would like to have met you. I know of you from the other forum, having seen several of your posts there.

Yes, there are time at the museum that it is hurry up and wait. But you will find as you come more often, those wait times give you a chance to catch up with like minded folks you only get to see once or twice a year.

Welcome aboard.

You forgot to mention that you give a fantastic presentation on the subject. One of the best I have ever been to.

Actually, I dug the hole for the new electrical building. And, in true archeological fashion, I found 2 ceramic pole insulators tied together in the hole. I am sure they were something Harry had, but I found it interesting to unearth them just the same.
