Further guidelines specify wearing face masks in such places as grocery stores, retail stores, pharmacies and health care facilities.  Also outdoor spaces such as playgrounds, congested parking lots, lines for take-out, bus stops and waiting areas and all forms of public transportation.

Equally important to us are her Stage 2 and Stage 3 relaxation guidelines.  Please study them and let's discuss the implications.

I applaud her careful, measured approach for Maine, as compared to (in my view) reckless steps being taken in other states.

With all that we and MNG have invested in this project to project invaluable Maine 2-foot equipment, it seems to me that fire suppression should be at the top of our list.  That probably also requires electricity, so how do we get there?

Have been working (with Pres Dave and others) on getting a brass engraved memorial plaque in honor of the donors for the restoration of the tank car.  Helps me feel useful without actually being in Sheepscot.

I think we can assume that electricity will be installed.  Once we get a feed over there, that's relatively modest investment to get the building fully wired.

Consider sheathing with board such as we did in the shop??

Wow, absolutely Wow!  So are we going to sheath the internal walls?  Otherwise, the horizontal members will become just another junk wall...??

Clearly, the sooner we get electricity to the car barn the better.  It will expand our options exponentially.

BTW, drove by today in wonderful weather, and it all looks great...

Do I assume there are no clear roof panels on the extension because we are expecting to get enough light through the window?  Or because we will be getting electricity and lighting to the building?  Or both??

James, is someone at the museum prepared to handle paper checks received by mail?  If not, what is the best route for getting money there that you would recommend?

Sheathing looks great.  How soon would it be advisable to paint it for weather protection?

Some of us might consider donating the individual stimulus package payments (if and when they ever arise) to the museum.  At this point, I plan to do that.

Wow, you all are thinking 53' trailers.  Build what makes sense for small groups to unload their gear for an event, and don't worry about it after that.  After all, the pyramids were built mostly by hand!

I'm guessing that if the out of staters are frightened enough to come to Maine, they are probably more willing than not to self-quarantine.

BTW, I'm mostly a Maine resident, but still have PA plates, so there can be legit reasons for my car to be out getting groceries (for example)
