FWW Day 4: Monday

A small crew today.

* Track crew: Some maintenance was done at Albee's Field, jacking and tamping.  However we got a late start so lunch time crept up on us.  While waiting for the tamper to finish, the crew retreived all the tools and trash from the end of track.
* Phone line: The line has been extended down the hill, not quite reaching the former end point.
* Parking Lot: Brendan was busy continuing to clear the parking lot.
* Loco 9: The engine was drained and cleaned.
* Food: Nancy served breakfast and lunch, then cleaned up.

Also, "backup" center line stakes were driven along the side of the r-o-w, in case spring ballasting moves the track out of position. (Rick, I hope I described this correctly) :o

Thanks for that very complete and comprehensive report on the FWW activities, Bill. It's greatly appreciated by those of us who could not participate.

It's also appreciated by those of us who were working down at Sheepscot the entire weekend.

Dispatcher Jeff ::)

I have a late morning flight out of Detroit on Wednesday. Due to a long layover in Chicago, I'll arrive at Manchester at 5 pm. That means I won't get to the museum until after dark Wednesday evening.

Thank you Jeff. The new one was made with a 4×4 laying around at my house just itching to be used. After making several wood blocks today, with more to make later this week the end result will be a Insta Track repair kit which will include a hack saw, hammer, small vice grips, pliers, washers, wing nuts, bolts, and blocks so that we will have a way to repair any insta tracks that get broken during the day.

Who on the track crew will be assigned the duty of remembering the kit? :o

I was thinking the third photo looks a lot like an abstract painting.

I was thinking impressionist painting.

John,

I can provide some general information about some of the critters. There is a Plymouth at Albion. I do not have any details about it. Also, there was a Plymouth at Biddeford Station that was a sister unit to WW&F 52. Plymouth 3 at Boothbay was used the building of a dam by Central Maine Power. Perhaps some of the local members at the museum can go into more detail regarding these critters.

Is there someone at the museum who would be willing to check the insta-track ties and perform the necessary repairs?
