For those of us who are also quite allergic to bee stings - removal would be a blessing.  Also keep in mind the general public when we have events in the pavilion in the future.

If its bald-faced hornets, kill and destroy nests ASAP.  These hornets are known to attack honey bee colonies as raiders and will destroy a hive in less than a day.  They are no friend of the farmers/orchards.

Would be nice if Gov. Mills would give Gov. Wolf a call.  PA has been lower in cases and deaths than either NY or NJ.

7/2/20 Update:

Wiscasset Woods Lodge will remain closed to the general public for the rest of the year per Saundra.  Those who had reservations for FWW are receiving refunds and open invites to make new reservations at Cod Cove.  Additionally, there is no truth to the rumor that the Lodge is up for sale -  Saundra and Eric have structured housing for a couple of local industries and that is tiding them over for this year.

Rick & Joe,

Wayne and I have been discussing and searching on this very subject.  Rick - if that ballast car still exists, please let me know.  If it's still available, I and a couple of other members would gladly shell out the $4,500.00 for it.

I thought the plan we to get the pavilion finished during FWW so that it could be used for VC, and other winter specials.  Has that plan changed?

Wayne, you must have been reading my mind - that's exactly the type of slide gate we need - maybe you, me, and Mike should get together (hopefully) during FWW and draw up a prototype unit.

Has anyone given any thought to make a hopper and ballast chutes on a tip car frame?  May not work for big jobs but for spot work they may be just what we need.

For the ditching work they seem to be fine.  Maybe we should reactivate more of them.  That and hi-rail gear for the kubota or finding a mini-excavator to hi-rail.

Could you just imagine what a NG-15 would look and sound like on the WW&F?  Sweet.............

So where would this "incoming" testing being done?  Like Wayne, I have to have a Dr.'s referral and they are too busy to deal with the "what if" folks.

With Boothbay being closed, could this be an opportunity for us to "borrow" one or more passenger cars for special events later this year ?????

But how does rules revision affect us out-of-state folks?  Do we still have the 14 day quarantine?

Could someone please clarify/qualify the term "Open Volunteering".  As far as I am aware anyone from out of state will have to "quarantine" themselves for 14 days before moving about Maine.   To my understanding that is still in effect until 30 June.  I would gladly be corrected to a shorter time frame........

Or completely replace all the axle, truck, and drive-rod bearing to roller bearings and re-balance the drivers, then a couple of guys would be able to just push the engine around.   :D

To all non-believers, there is film on youtube showing a NYC 4-8-4- Niagara with all roller bearings and rod bearings being pushed by 4 guys.
