Excellent job.  We could have joined in Mt. Union if scheduled out-patient surgery for Barb and recovery had not been in the way.

I remember getting Dunkin Donuts at a new shop in Glen Bernie, MD IN 1964.  I also knew that it was owned by a husband and wife team and they cleared $25,000 their first year, this while I was an electronic engineer grossing ~ $7,500 a year.  Granted that they worked their hides off!  I especially liked the original donut with the "dunking" handle!

In my early childhood '41 - '45 I remember liking Moxie but when we moved back to Maine in 1949 I tried it and it tasted like burnt Birch Beer flavored pop!  Swore of it at that time.  P.S. I was 11 at the time.

Wasn't the original bridge designed for loads of a standard gauge engine which could go to about 200,000 pounds?  Would account for size of structure.

Tremendous work and accomplishments Congratulations!  We really enjoy keeping up with the museum's various efforts.  Really appreciate the photos, videos and comments.  Regret that distance and health keep us from active participation.  Thanks again and ever forward!
