Thank you so much Bill for that very interesting report that perfectly shows how the gantry system works. No wonder that with such a brillant system and organisation you have achieved what you've planned. I've discovered the WW&F just a year ago and I've been following you  on fb and  on the forum since then . I must say that this first eventful year has been  very exciting and I'm sure that the next few years will be  as much .Although I'm only a far away onlooker  I can really experience the emotions and happiness that the on the spot volunteers feel because you guys know how to share them through  fb , this forum and You tube. Thank you so much and congratulations again for your great sense of communication and for all that you've already completed all along that historic year.

The pick-up was loaded with ties to take to the dump tomorrow. I cut them in half for easy unloading. When your 82 and have no crew, it's best to cut the ties into!

FWW Day 4: Monday

A small crew today.

* Track crew: Some maintenance was done at Albee's Field, jacking and tamping.  However we got a late start so lunch time crept up on us.  While waiting for the tamper to finish, the crew retreived all the tools and trash from the end of track.
* Phone line: The line has been extended down the hill, not quite reaching the former end point.
* Parking Lot: Brendan was busy continuing to clear the parking lot.
* Loco 9: The engine was drained and cleaned.
* Food: Nancy served breakfast and lunch, then cleaned up.

The gift shop crew planned weeks in advance, having new shirts made for the bridge project as well as other merchandise.  Thanks to the many volunteers who made purchases, the gift shop had sales over $4,100

Mike, you may not have been up there all weekend; but you sure played an important part! Those 48" culverts and that retaining wall are some important elements, that will be in service for years to come! I am glad that there were no injuries, except maybe a few blisters from the spike mauls. Thank you to everybody who worked on the FWW.

i am enjoying every one of the pictures!

Yes, as always we are fortunate to have so many experienced and non experienced volunteers from a few different railroads. And as normal, we showed our appreciation by trying to talk to and thank everyone for all their help.

But even more importantly are those regular volunteers who spent hundreds of hours prepairing for the work weekend.

It's worth noting, I think, that among the volunteers who were on the scene over the weekend, there were folks representing several other museums and tourist railroads. Thanks to all!
