Yes, It was quite balmy in Sheepscot yesterday - I think it may have hit 40 degrees!

Moderator Announcements / In Memory Of...
« on: January 10, 2018, 06:14:11 PM »
I know we've lost a number of volunteers and friends over the history of the museum. Ira's death hit home because I think he was the first one that we've lost that I had the pleasure of working and laughing alongside of. (I just never had that blessing with most of the others we've lost over the years.)

At any rate, I have created a new section of the forum "In Memory Of..." for those who want to share stories and remembrances of those we have lost. To protect privacy, this section is in the "Members Only" discussion area. (If you are a museum member, and do not have access, please contact me.)

I've moved Ira's thread there, along with several others that I found with some forum searching. Please feel free to start new threads there for others that are no longer with us. (A big gap is that there is no thread on Harry Percival.)

Also, if you see a thread that should be in that area, let me know and I will move it.

Thanks,

-Ed

She even captured Bob Longo in the cab

Idk. That Engineer looks more like Steve Zuppa to me. :-)

Victorian Christmas always brings out the photographers, and I always look forward to seeing their take on the railroad through their artistic lens. This one, however, is my all time favorite:



We received this beautiful card from the daughter of the Ames family that attended the 2017 Victorian Christmas. It captures the spirit of Christmas, and our railroad perfectly. Well done!

I bet I know someone on NH who would be happy to go take a look at it if there is interest.

Will the cutting and clearing occuring on Saturday also include burning? Long-range forecast says next Sat will be still very, very cold (single-digit highs, if it makes it above 0.)

while it felt like we were going at a good clip, it was actually about 2-3 MPH
It certainly felt faster than that; it was cold out there on the running board. And now I do recall slowing down before excitement struck.
