So we don’t get carried away with all this new-fangled computer/Zoom marlarkey I have tasked John McNamara and Stewart Rhine to come up with a remote meeting solution that is compatible with our mag phone system. And no lithium batteries either!

That happened when the president came through on his inspection tour to ensure compliance with the COVID-19 edict.

We also removed the south truck from Brian’s boxcar (51?) and then removed it’s north wheel set for switching with a wheel set from #9’s tender (with Brian’s gracious permission). We includes Bryce, Dan, Wayne, HWMNBN, Jason, Gawdon along with my encouragement and cheering. Brendan also provided tractor support for moving the wheel set out of the way which I rigged (meaning I slipped the lifting belt around the axle).
Dan and Bryce also had fun heating recalcitrant nuts until they were red hot. Fun with a torch! We all then rabidly watched the hot nuts burrow through remaining ground ice. We’re easily amused in Sheepscot these days....

By “helping” Fred means “supervising” from his chair

Is there anyone planning on being at Sheepscot on Saturday that knows how to use a floor sander? Asking for a friend.

I just joined as well. It's still not simple as you have to create an account but, then what is these days!

We did have an interesting conversation about incorporating a conveyor system like the photo.

I won't be there right at 8:00 but will be fashionably soon thereafter. I may have a sidekick as well but I'll let him speak for himself.

Then there was that 11:45 a.m. singing phone call from the Big E to Fred... The three part harmony wowed the crowd in the Young Building.

Do we have any way of knowing where our guests are coming from? Presumably local but who knows.

Way to go Stewart and Cindy! We reached 10,000 followers because you keep it fresh and relevant. Updating the site as often as you do is not easy. Like rust, you never sleep. We owe you a lot for attracting so many followers. Now, on to 20,000!

Nice shot, especially at the end of a long day. Even though we were cold and tired the entire crew wanted to make sure the photographers left for home happy and satisfied with The Grand Reunion. Since the Albee field shot didn't work I'm glad a substitute was found thanks to you. And Bill cancelled his order for a new Peloton. He found that walking back and forth along a 13 car train provided all the exercise he needed.
Best regards,

I was overwhelmed with how everyone went the extra mile to make it a pleasant experience for our guests. Not a frown to be seen anywhere- nothing but smiles. Many, many of our guests told me how much they appreciate that we do this. They noted the drenched volunteers still smiling after a long day with awe. I couldn’t have been any prouder (or wetter). Thanks to all who made the day a success.

Dynamat would be easy to install and not take up much room.

This would be great at Victorian Christmas. I agree with Bob about a new color scheme. Of course, we’ll need someone to apply the paint...
