WOW, love it.  Great to see Joe in his regular work environment.  Thanks Stephen.

I agree with Start.  If the opportunity ever arises, a shop cat would be a wonderful addition...

Give Zack some credit as well.  He and Fred poured and spread the treatment liquid.  It was extremely potent chemically, not stuff you want to be around for very long.

Brendan, great pics of today's pour.  When I left late afternoon, they were still smoothing and troweling, but it looks fantastic....

Whatever the history, it's all worth preserving...

Holy cow -- my dream home.  Who cares what the house is like?

Would we ever want to build a replica Maine two-foot wedge plow?  We have rolling stock from other Maine two-footers, so it's not necessarily outside of our mission...

(BTW, I think wedge plows are really cool, next only to D&RG rotaries.)

Very close...I suspect others can detail exactly...

Original Railway / Re: Burnham Overhead Crossing

Wow!  Last weekend, I rode the Belfast and Moosehead Lake, which I mistakenly thought had been totally abandoned.  I was amazed to learn that its western terminus was in fact Burnham, which would then have been a three-way meet with the Maine Central, the B&ML and the WW&F.  Wouldn't that have been a fascinating picture back then?

BTW, their trackage is in much worse shape than ours.  They are working hard in their preservation efforts, but they don't have near the volunteer force that we do.

FYI, rails were prepped today.  Concrete vendor arrived to assess extent of job and volume of concrete.  Monday will be a prep day (polyethylene layer, steel mesh, etc.)  Pouring will depend on availability of a concrete pump -- prob Thursday or Friday.

Guys, what are we thinking to get the walking/biking trail across Trout Creek parallel to the bridge?  That will need some planning with the Mid-Coast Conservancy folks.

Follow the line of WW&F pilings to the sanitation plan.  At the top of the picture, there is a small piece of land protruding on the other side of the MEC tracks from the sanitation plant.  That was WW&F ROW.  The linked stations were nestled in that angle between the two ROW's.

Sorry I left out Jason as the other major source of pics...the four of them are fantastic in keeping us visually up to date.

If you think about it, the three people that post the most pictures are Brendan, Mike and Start.  I tried to learn how, but you have to go outside the discussion group to a photo-specific website, and then paste in the link on the discussion group.

Perhaps Brendan and Mike can reeducate us so that more of us can do this.  I was there late this afternoon (running in to John McNamara) and took a picture of the opened up bay, but I still don't really know how to effectively post it.
