Yes. Bill Caswell, President of the Society for the Preservation of Covered Bridges, has been well informed of our progress and has been working among his circle of preservationists to ensure the success of this project. Unfortunately, he was unable to be present on bridge move day.

Let me just add that from a train operations standpoint, the magneto phone system is essential. My cell phone is absolute junk almost anywhere in Alna. The magphone system works great and reliably - except when it is cut. Getting the line buried is probably one of the more important tasks we should complete during Spring 2019.

Then we should do something about the saplings growing along the line...

There does appear to be a broader issue. I was able to get John Kokas' address working using the email re-entry method (be sure to save the changed email address before changing it back again.) However, there is another forum member (not disclosed above) who is still not receiving notifications - and he is using a regular gmail address.

So, I guess I don't know what is causing the issue. I've checked the error logs and other related settings. This may have to be something we live with.

I am not getting notifications, but my email has not changed.

If that is the case:
1. Check your Spam folder, etc. It's possible that they are ending up there. We have had isolated reports that emails from may get flagged as spam.

2. Change the email address anyway, then change it back. It's possible that the database just needs to refresh it.

Once that is done, you can test it yourself by sending yourself a private message. If you get the test message notification in your email, then it is working correctly.

Hi Everyone,

It has come to my attention that some members were not getting email notifications when they were sent a "Private Message" via the forum. In all cases, this was due to an outdated or not-frequently-checked email address in the member's account.

Please be sure that your account is up-to-date with your current email address. Otherwise, you will miss out on this notification, and possibly other official WW&F communication.

To update your account, click the Profile link near the top of the forum page, then select Account Related Settings. Locate the Email field and change it to your current email address, then add your current WW&F Forum Password at the very bottom of the page. Press Change Profile and your account will now be updated.

If you have forgot your password, please let me know ( and I can reset it on your behalf.

I'd also like to remind everyone that a Private Message notification email is just that - a notification. To read and respond to the actual message, please do so on the Forum. Responding to the notification email sends that response back to ME and not the intended recipient. Usually, I then forward it off to correct individual (assuming his or her current email address is present in the account.)

Thanks for your cooperation on this matter.

Your Friendly Moderator,

I would never have thought to use the temp bridge to attach the outrigger tension rods.

I had the same thought. Now I wonder how they attached the outriggers to the west (upstream) side of the bridge?

A 12 pack of Moxie for whoever came up with the "bumper sticker".

I cannot tell a lie...
... but I'll pass on the "prize".

Today's progress:
Timbers were installed across the temporary spans and were load tested. Everything is within tolerance and ready to acceptthe span.
The moving dollys were installed to the bridge and the truck attached. The bridge was repositioned slightly in the parking lot.
The bridge is scheduled to depart Sheepscot around 7am.

There are pictures on the WW&F Facebook page; you can get them (even without Facebook) via the main home page.

The steel spans were supposed to be set in place yesterday or today. I haven't heard the results yet.

Work is ongoing this week, with the move from Sheepscot to the bridge site scheduled for EARLY Saturday 9/8. I assume that all the regulars are very busy getting everything done and haven't had time to post updates here (or on Facebook.)

I, for one, really wish I could be there today or tomorrow. I *may* try to get up there in Friday, but will definitely be there Saturday... but on train crew.

Is there going to be anyone there on Monday 9/3 working on anything?

Grab a Moxie and a smile.
Or I'd like to teach the world to Moxie?

It's the real thing.

And I thought we would never use that trailer that was tucked away at Davis/Brook crossing!

Great job Mike!

Camping has also been done on the WW&F ROW heading south of Sheepscot.
