Take away the construction machinery (don't you just love Photo Shop!) and we get a preview of just how photogenic this location will be!

What is the plan for moving this massive structure to it's remote location?
Looks to be quite a challenge!

Work continues on Bountyland Railway, our 7 1/2 gauge tribute to The WW&F Museum.
Soon we hope to have the shop building far enough along to begin painting.  It's my hope that someone can tell me the paint color used on the WW&F shop.  Looks "cream" with a very light brown trim in the photos I have but I'd like to be accurate in my colors. 
Also, I'm wondering, was the Museum shop color patterned after the WW&F shop in Wiscasset?

Thanks in advance,
Bob Springs

I thought it might be nice to back-date the color shot.

Does anyone at this point have an idea when the No 10 will go back into service?

Perhaps some will be interested in seeing our latest project--A station building patterned after stations at Sheepscot and Alna Center.  This is not a scale model but is proportioned to generally match the size of our engine and cars while still being large enough for our station agent to work inside.  The actual floor level is a foot lower than the apparent floor level and the ceiling is clear-story.  Plenty of room inside for 2 adults.
I'll send more pictures once the interior is finished.

Beg to differ, Kevin.  An artist, you DEFINITELY are!

I think it looks great too.  As pointed out, access into the pit for mowing and snow removal has to be a major plus and the current scheme does provide greater safety, both for visitors and volunteers. So important.   All good points for sure  but also it has that element of simplicity so common in narrow gauge railroading. It has just the right "look" about it. Great job!

Will the turntable get a 360 degree outer rail or will it only have the outer rail at the "business end" as now?
