The Sunday evening post features a 100+ year old photo taken in Wiscasset of the bridge walk where everyone crossed the WW&F freight line on the bridge.  The rare view was taken prior to the construction of the Turner Centre Creamery so you see more of the trestlework.

Here's an indication of the level of interest in our project to build new boilers:  

The news and photos of the shop crew flanging the first firebox plate went up last night and over 6,200 people have seen the post.

Tonight's post features scenes of the shop crew using the flanging machine today to bend the first plate for #10's backhead.

The two carpentry projects are:

* Boxcar #67

* Rebuilding / leveling the north end of the Sheepscot station platform.

The Sunday post features an Easter event photo album with a boxcar #67 update at the end.

It's been a very busy week at Sheepscot, check the fb page for photo updates on a number of projects.

We have the same type of antique door rollers for combine #8.

The Sunday post is the news blurb about the NRHS awarding the WW&F it's Railway Heritage Grant for additional work on our Eames Automatic Vacuum Brake System.

There are recent photos on fb.

Thanks Bill,

We look forward to seeing the doors in person!  We hope you saw tonight's photos on facebook.  Combine #8's doorway is looking great with the quarter round frame sides and steel sill in place.  Note the first photo on the post, pink sunrise right before the storm... no trees or flowers budding and there's still snow on the ground.

It's been a cloudy wet week in Alna but the shop crew has been doing some great inside work.  Check fb for updates on boxcar #67 and combine #8.

We were also wondering how the rails kept gauge for the track laying machine and locomotive to pass over them when we didn't see anyone spiking or setting gauge rods.

Hi Wayne,

Yes you may have missed my earlier comment that I'm the one leaning on the Brookville... and hiding behind ya.   Grin

The guy on the Brookville looks like Dave B.  The other one (with hand on the hood) is me.

The Sunday post is a view of #9 leading a train down "The Ladder" with back lit steam.  Tune in to see this great John Collins photo.
