Volunteers / Re: November 2020 Work Reports
« on: November 09, 2020, 08:05:41 AM »
I don’t have any photos of the work done in Portland on Saturday but there were four of us from the WW&F working there. It was myself, Dan Malkowski, Bryce Weeks, and James Nobilini. There were also a number of folks from other railroads there. We worked spiking in the new ties and
gauging track. James was running the crew and we managed to get all of the new ties
spiked and got the mainline reconnected. I am hoping that Dan or Bryce can post some photos and add anything I have missed.

Fred, we left it next to the tracks in just in case we need to use it to open a branch line.

I should’ve cut the whole tree down. Then I could’ve made a stump speech and formEd that splinter group. Instead of having a board of directors I could be a director of boards. Oak-Kay enough for now before I become so poplar that some son of a birch tries to cy-press my speech.

That was one heavy limb! It wasn’t far from being an issue.

The track crew also jacked up the bay 4 lead then leveled and tamped it. We also finally removed the big oak limb that was hanging over the tracks at Cock Eye Curve.  A lot of work got done yesterday on many projects. A good day!

Congratulations Joseph!  That is a very impressive list of accomplishments for a young man. You’ve really come into your own. I hope that you’re gap year is helpful and that you have great success in college. Hope to see you at the Fall Work Weekend!

Never mind.  The reduced travel restriction starts immediately for NH and VT folks.  If you are going to need commercial lodging you have to wait until Friday 6/12.  This according to the State Website.

I read in the paper that this new reduced restriction takes effect on Friday 6/12.  Was that incorrect?

Thanks to James and Mike for leading a fun and productive day. It was hot, dry, and dusty and I was down about a pint courtesy of the black flies, but felt really good about all we accomplished yesterday. Good crew, good work. Thanks to the midweek crew for teeing you the ball!

Not railroad related but it is about steam and I thought some of you might find it interesting.

It took about two strokes with the car mover to break her free and gain a little momentum and then I pushed her out.

What if I ride a horse to the museum?  It’s walking distance (easy for me to say) for the horse...😉

I hope that somehow we can take this opportunity to get some much needed track work done on the mainline. So to clarify, no one who doesn’t live within walking distance of the museum can be there?  Or are there exceptions?
