Is the SR&RL Vose railcar still coming?

If I recall correctly, the Vose railcar is currently in the care of a member/volunteer from MNG. I don't know if it will be moved to Sheepscot.

I have been asking for years to have someone post the expected weekday work as well as the work done. More may come help if the work interests them. Thank you Steve for the report.

My understanding is that the migration of equipment from Portland to Alna (WW&F or ML&W) is now complete. MNG has plans to build a new ramp track in a different location - but there may be issues with access and maneuverability.

Sorry to intrude on the work reports, but I can't find anything about what equipment was moved from Portland to Alna.  It was probably n another site.  B

But the question I have is whether or not all MNG equipment has been moved to Alna in order to save it.  Or there "stuff" still in Portland that needs to be salvaged.

OK, thanks.  That orients me, but doesn't necessarily make sense.  Is there a Mill there?

I will echo Jason's and Dave's requests. It's great to hear what happens during the week at the museum.

Yes, and we should recognize this work in our Newsletter.  It's something that's been in the back of my mind for a while now.

Our July/August issue is set now, so I hope we can highlight this in the next issue or two.  I'd be happy to work with Steve, Jason or another member of the mid-week crew on this.  They're unsung heroes.

This week's edition of the Lincoln County News has a front page, above the fold article on the Museum.  I can't find it on the LCN's website, so you may need to buy the paper.

Unfortunately, I believe I'm outside their circulation range. 8)

One would need new content about once a week. Several that I follow have a set dat of the week they release a new video. It is usually something that was recorded recently, but could be several months old. One of the channels said he spends several hours a couple days a week to put together a video, not to mention the time recording..
