The museum's new truck donated by Dean Copeland arrived in Sheepscot last week. The truck is an 1989 GMC Topkick that has a 18 foot dumping flatbed and will be an upgrade over the Yeti when towing the big trailer. Dean sent the truck up to Maine loaded with sawmill parts. Dave Allen from Chesterfield Associates Inc. sent one his employees down to Marshfield, MA to drive the truck up to Maine for us last week.

The coal stove going in the the north end of the shop arrived Sunday. We took apart and resealed the stove today. The plan is to install the stove in the shop tomorrow. The stove for the south end of the shop is expected to arrive after Christmas.

Any trucks to go with the flatcar?

Jeff S.

We got wheel sets with the car but will have to build trucks. The plan is to use the trucks from B&SR boxcar 56 to get the flatcar in operation for spring work weekend. When B&SR 56 is restored the Bridgton trucks under WW&F 126 will be used under 56 and 126 will get new common bolster trucks.

The railroad got a coal delivery Tuesday. The old coal bin was in sad shape so the remaining coal was moved and the bin was demolished. Fred and I built a new bin today and hauled two pickup truck loads of the old bin off to the dump. After lunch Fred moved the coal into the new bin. We built the new bin with two sides to make tractor access easier.

No. 34 was built by the B&SR shops and the castings on the car including the couplers are marked B&SR.

Spiking started on the siding today.





Lining track with the excavator before the gravel went on.



ML&M's contractor putting gravel down to allow vehicle access over the track. Most of the track is in the driveway and will be covered up to the rail head with gravel.









The contractor loading 118 with ballast for the switch.







Ballast being put down. The switch still needs to be tamped.

Most of the switch was bolted together and safety spiked today. The last two days have been in the 20's and snow is expected tomorrow, so we left the flat cars over the switch and covered the points with a tarp. The hope is for easy snow removal on Saturday to finish spiking.
