Midcoast Conservancy is headquartered at 36 Water St in Wiscasset.

It appears to be a much larger organization than before with several full-time staff.  Maybe they have expanded resources now as well...

Their Trout Brook Preserve has a trail that appears to be located in part on our ROW (just beyond the Trout Brook crossing).  The preserve map has a paragraph on the WW&F.

Their web site:

From the web:

Sheepscot Valley Conservation Association updated: July 2016
On January 1, 2016 the Sheepscot Valley Conservation Association merged with Damariscotta Lake Watershed Association, Hidden Valley Nature Center and Sheepscot Wellspring Land Alliance to become Midcoast Conservancy.

Knowing the energy of the conservation/land preservation folks, I would think this would be a natural alliance, one that would be easy to make, and one we should explore right away.  Hikers will love it!

For example, I can easily see a marked trailhead at TOM where that trail abuts our property.  And we work with them on a joint map.

Are there any other nearby trails that are adjacent to our ROW (including all the way to Head Tide)?

Cool links, both of you.  Now if we could find a way to link the crossings on Mike's map (with names) to the TNC map update...

Ed does your s/w allow for blowing up the scale of the terrain map for more detail?  I suspect it does if someone is managing a 600 acre farm showing every detail such as culverts (from the testimonials on the webpage)...

Thanks, Ed, that's a great map.  Unfortunately it doesn't show the different crossings mentioned in the above posts.  Is there a way those can be added, along with the new trackage?  If I knew how the map was done, I would volunteer to help update it.

Is there a ROW map that shows these crossings and mp's?

Terrific series of pixs.  Thanks Start...

Forget to say:  Mike you're a genius on this one...
10  WW&F Railway Museum Discussion / Work and Events / Re: Equipment Car 1015 - Official Work Thread on: June 04, 2017, 12:36:50 AM
Mike, what's your testing plan.  I sort of assume the dozer is last?!

Re 67 trucks:  ML&M?  Can someone elaborate on the story behind mismatched and now matched trucks?

Thanks.

So thankful for the recovery!!!  Bet it was pretty scary for you guys...

Another lesson in why it's so important to back up your own systems EVERY day.  Including your home computer.  If you don't have a backup plan, run -- don't walk -- to get either a backup drive and software (such as Acronis) or a backup cloud solution.

This was an exceptionally broad selection of the amazing progress in just the last week!

Mike, I think if you put out a call a couple of days before you need them, you can muster some additional help.
15  WW&F Railway Museum Discussion / Work and Events / Re: Down the Mountain to Trout Brook - Official Work Thread on: May 17, 2017, 12:34:44 AM
Yes, GO for track work on FWW.  That should be the summer objective (IMHO).
