Just curious, the lettering that can be seen within the 2 patterns appears "normal" and read-able. Shouldn't it be in reverse? Perhaps I'm missing something.

It is quite obvious that a tremendous amount of planning has gone into this bridge project. The use of materials that are far more state of the art than what has been used in the past is good to see for the longevity of this project. What a great team the museum has in the gang that is planning and producing this bridge!

Mike, be careful about leaving the keys in the dozer or you may find the moose and deer have taken it for a ride. LOL

$80 is a very good price. I bought my 2-book set a number of years ago and paid quite a bit more.

Only "might be" involved? Wow, oh ye of modest faith. LOL
In my "neck of the woods" it would be foregone conclusion. I live in front of and abutting a long-ago discontinued trolley ROW, now part of privately-owned property. To this day we have younger folks who feel that riding dirt bikes, atv's and even the occasional car or truck upon it is perfectly acceptable conduct. Only a well placed tree or washout can stop the folks who try to drive upon it. The museum might encounter the same sort of mindset from members of the younger (and perhaps some of the not so young) generation once the access to 218 becomes more easily traversed.

Mike, I must say that you do not mess around when you set to work on a project. Great job! Wish I could be there to help.

Great interview Dave. You really gave the museum and all the folks who both attend activities as well as participate in those activities a great pat on the back. Again, wonderful interview.

Bridgton & Saco River Railway / Re: Pondicherry Mill Trestle

Bill, that sounds like a lot of fun. Next time I'm thereabouts, I'll have to think about that as well. Unlike the folks who live relatively nearby, I have to plan ahead for a time to explore as you do as well. My wife and I spend a week in that general area each summer so my chances to explore are of the warm weather variety. Unfortunately that brings on the "little critters" and foliage.

When you view that site now with the food store and parking lot, it's interesting trying to imagine the former mill on the same site.

Mike, Thanks for digging up my old pictures. As I was reading the start of this article I was trying to recall where I put my copies of those pictures. You saved me a bit of searching. Unfortunately, I have not taken any other pictures beyond those that were already loaded.

Very nice article Bill. Thanks for sharing. It takes a lot of love on this lady's part to try to preserve the trains and the park. Good for her.

Great shots one and all but it looks to have been bitterly cold. I can't fault that dozer for not wanting to start without some extra warming. I hope you had a fire nearby to give you all a place to warm up a bit although I don't see one in any of the pictures.

This is an update on my previous post regarding accommodations for the Spring Work Weekend. My wife made repeated attempts to contact the Edgecomb Inn regarding a deal or deals that could be made for museum members/visitors who needed a place to stay during the SWW. The Edgecomb Inn has not responded to her repeated attempts. If anyone chooses to use the Inn and manages to strike a deal perhaps they could share that information here for others who may need a place to stay in the spring.

Museum Discussion / 2018 Spring Work Weekend accommodations
« on: October 08, 2017, 12:16:26 AM »
My wife took the liberty of approaching both The Cod Cove Inn and The Sheepscot Harbor Village and Resort about their accommodations for museum spring work weekend attendees from away since the Wiscasset Woods Motel will not be open at that time in spring 2018.
Cod Cove Inn - 1-800-882-9586 or 1-207-882-9586; 1 queen room - $139.00/night, 2 queen $149.00/night, 1 king $159.00/night all before 10% discount for the museum but you must ask for the discount. Continental breakfast included. 19 rooms left as of 10/7 at 7:30 pm.
Sheepscot Harbor Village and Resort - 1-207-882-4200; 1 queen $139.00/night, they do give military discounts, person on desk did not have authority to comment on discounts for museum members - maybe/maybe not.

Hope this info helps others to find rooms spring 2018.
