Spring Work Weekend 2001
« on: April 26, 2015, 06:58:01 PM »
So, it has been a few years since I have been down to volunteer!  School, work, and life have all crept up.  But going through some things at the house I have uncovered a few pictures from 2001, a month or so before high school graduation for me, of the spring work weekend.

These are all scans of B&W prints taken with my old AE1.  Let me know off list if you would like a higher resolution or larger format.

I hope there are some familiar faces in there.

...last one.  Again, I can format just about any size / resolution for you if you want it.  Just give me a shout.

Paul, I enjoyed your vintage work weekend photos.  I would like to see some higher-resolution copies of them all to better recognize some of the "troops."  Perhaps "Start" can give you some direction on this.

That was the year we had to shovel snow off the right-of-way.  It was also early in the years of SWW, when we were trying to figure out the best dates to have it.  It was very early that year, right around April 15.  After that we decided not to have it that early.

Was April 15th too taxing?

Yeah, I thought resolution would be a problem.  So I broke down and signed up with an Imgur account, hope this will help.

Great shots! Thanks!

I can remember when walking up to the remnants of the original trestle was a several hour undertaking. Now we just blast across the new trestle with hardly a thought about what a major project it was. Your photos bring back great memories of 14 years ago ;D
