Mike, I think if you put out a call a couple of days before you need them, you can muster some additional help.

Yes, GO for track work on FWW.  That should be the summer objective (IMHO).

Per Joe, let's have a master plan for the West Yard that takes those several comments about "presentation" into consideration....

Re painting, saw the recent picture of the crane.  How about the tamper?  Or is there anything else I'm not familiar with?

Beautiful.  I love the bright yellow on both of Mike's cars.  Should we consider painting ALL MOW equipment in a uniform yellow color with black lettering?  It would make striking appearance in the yards.

Good idea to have a West Yard master plan!!

Re Bath viaduct:  they have been ahead of schedule all winter (some warm spells helped a lot).  We've been driving through back and forth most of the time, and there has only very rarely been any delay at all (except during BIW shift changes).

Great pix as usual Brendan...

Paul, that's always a problem when the bank changes your credit card (probably for good reasons to prevent problems because of some hacking incident).  When that happens, I don't always remember where I have auto deductions, and I sometimes get caught unawares.

So for WW&F, do we have any mechanism to identify when this is a problem when we've got members who are on automatic contribution and it goes south like Paul describes?

Wow, the Easter eggspress was clearly a huge success.  Just out of curiosity, did we make money, break even, or lose money on this event this year?

I confess to having no clue about the revenue/expense factors in play.  And of course, the donations of volunteers are a major factor.

I'm asking not to criticize, because the goodwill/pr/marketing are priceless, and will far outweigh the financial results.

But I remain curious....thanks.

Thanks, Brendan...

Wow, can't wait to see the green paint version....

Go with what has been done before.  Block out the window and don't worry about seeing through the crate...
15  WW&F Railway Museum Discussion / Work and Events / Re: Box Car 67 - Official Work Thread on: April 10, 2017, 01:27:01 AM
Wow, at last.  I had never known how much work needed to be done to put the sheathing on a freight car.  Cudos, to those who understood the making of a robust "infrastructure" of a simple boxcar. Who really knew??
