Volunteers / Re: NO ROOM AT SHEEPSCOT FOR SPRING 2019 WORK WEEKEND
« on: April 11, 2019, 02:21:51 AM »
I asked Sonja if I could sleep in the trunk of my car for spring work weekend and got a hard no.  I’m guessing that extends to rv’s.

Ok, I was more wondering if there would be anyone there with a plan.  Also, is there anything I can do when I get there Friday night?

Are there any plans to cut that big group of hemlocks on the inside of the curve south of sawmill curve?

Is there any way we could charge $1 and make our first revenue freight run?

I know there is a seemingly endless amount of things to do up there.  I was more wondering if there was any step in prepping the railbed I was missing.

Looks like you got a bunch of work done, wish I could have been there.  After those last trees are cut is there anything to du until spring when mike can smooth out the grade?

Railroad rides rough on rumps can reduce rider retention resulting in rejected restorations.

What are the meanings of the different colors?  I’m guessing the major colors are different branches, but what are the small red changes?  Especially the ones just north of Wiscasset.

I think the long term plan is the expansion of the car barn, this year?  And I thought that the rail car would be good because it has that inbuilt lifting mechanism, and is thin.  it would by no means be a good long term plan but it would be nice to keep the refurbished stuff from languishing outside while storage is expanded.

Museum Discussion / Getting the passenger car back inside

I have been sitting here, thinking.  Now that's normally a dangerous thing to be happening.  No idea if this is one of those times.  In this case i was thinking about ways to get the passenger car back to being stored inside.  There is a lot of space on the middle car barn track between the box and the railbus. If we took the railbus off the tracks and stuck it between the different tracks (kind of like that piece of machinery next to the flanger) could the stuff the caboose, box, and passenger car all on that track?

Is there any effort to save them? or are they beyond saving at this point.
