I'd like to see a x-country ski trail network out there as well, and offer a ski train service, someday. 

The new wide entrance door of coach 8 will make boarding and de-boarding with cross-country skis fairly easy. Add the traditional A-frame ski stand, and we're ready to go.

Congratulations Mike! You're a guy who can excavate government paperwork as well as dirt, gravel, etc.

There's still a bug of some sort. When I enter my name, a box pops up and reports that there is no such user. However, if I ignore the box and type in my password, everything is fine......

Did any of the original WW&F coaches have toilet facilities, or are Maine folks tougher than the rest of us?
Yes. Coach 3 has one, although without fixtures.

Let's hope Stephen Hussar re-posts his picture of eagle-eye Dana preparing the track for Class 8 use.

As well as a view of our nice new culverts.

I am reminded of the "Concerto for Horn and Hardart," the decriptipn of which asks the listener to note the "melodious sound of the Hardart." The Wikipedia entry for this piece is most illuminating.  Grin

The whole goal of 1015 involves filling washouts. Having "stuff" on board provides needed fill. Grin

11  Other Maine Narrow Gauges (Historic & Preserved) / Bridgton & Saco River Railway / Re: Return of the Rails...Again! on: May 13, 2017, 04:03:11 AM
Gray has the advantage of more nearby attractions, ease of Turnpike access, and closer proximity to their volunteers. Also, rumor has it that the last meeting between the MNG folks and the Bridgton folks consisted of each group saying, "What are you going to do for us?" I gather the Gray folks are more receptive, although not $500K receptive. Grin

I'm reminded of the "inspection pit" that Jason built many years ago at the south end of Bay 3, long before we had a real pit.

Very, very good! All accessible to your friendly local newsletter editor, too. Grin Grin

At least the paint will be dry then
I saw a picture of Bryce and Dan sitting on it. I hope it was dry then, or they'll suffer from Yellow Butt.

Is the coupler hole big enough?
