I have a video taken on the FWW Monday afternoon as Johnathon and I took the work train down to EOT to pick up the tools.  It goes from Judy's crossing to the current EOT.  It is 4:20 minutes long.  It stars Jason and a very happy young member.  She was getting a ride on his shoulders up the ROW as he was looking at the final track alignment.

Highlights are the Slide at 1:50, the Pinch Point at 2:30 and our fearless leader with her transport at 2:45.  The new EOT is at 4:20 with only the sawmill curve to get around to be able to see the Bridge.

It is posted on the WW&F YouTube page. Direct link is:

Interesting, you can see the two sets of ships masts in the background.  Also, the switch stands only have one head block.

Hopefully someone who had a camera today or perhaps tomorrow could take and post the same walk photographically that Mike did with all the track down.  That new 1420 feet is a beautiful set of two foot curves through a stunning set of Maine mountain Woods.

 Other things accomplished:
The decking in the handrails on the back porch were finished along with the shake siding for the basement entrance dog house which was never installed when the entrance foyer was built because of the close proximity of the old porch.
The crane rails for bay 3 are outside of bay three and the brackets from which they will be suspended are almost completed. There are a great number of brackets required to support the crane rails.
Of course trains were run and a great deal of food was prepared and consumed.

I put all of it including the pipe on the caboose day before yesterday I’ll make sure it’s still there today. The caboose has been going up with the word train every day.

Joe,

As usually, you have it under control and have thought of everything. 

I am looking forward to being a part of all this work this weekend.

I hope we have considered our track laying will be on a down grade.  Need a hefty couple of folks to keep the rail from racing down the crane from the loading flat car to the EOT.

Who on the track crew will be assigned the duty of remembering the kit? :o

Jeff S.

The same person assigned to remember to charge the Joint Bar Bolt Impact Wrench and bring it along.

Joe,

You are really on top of it.  Sort of like a chip off the old Insta-Track Block.

That is not a dig at your dad (the real digger in the family).
