Hi Ken -
We have received all the pledges we need. The lubricator is purchased and will be shipped to Sheepscot tomorrow!
Thanks!

There's a donate button on the webpage, it points to treasurer@wwfry.org.

To the donors - THANK YOU!
We have received PayPal from two of you. The rest can either use PayPal (there's a donate button on the webpage, it points to treasurer@wwfry.org.), call in (Saturday) with a Credit Card or mail a check. I remind everyone NOT to email credit card numbers - email is not a secure medium.

And if anyone else is feeling exceedingly generous, I've been told that Jason would like this for #11...

Jason did some additional research, and it turns out that the injectors used on WW&F #7 were not of the style currently for sale at the above link. So, there will be no effort to coordinate its acquisition for the museum.

Maybe what we need is a "Jason" wish list of items that are/will be needed so that members can keep a eye out for them and alert everyone when something pops up.

Very nice!  Will the 6th drip feed be used, or will that be a spare?

Happy Thanksgiving, everyone!

Any chance one of the picture takers could take one showing the discharge end of one or more of those lines from the lubricator? I realize that may be a tall order, owing to things in the way such as drivers, frame members, etc. I'm curious as to how the oil gets from the end of a line to, say, the waste pocket on an eccentric strap.

Also wondering whether the oil feed will be during operation, or perhaps just during stops.

Just a heads up. To date, we have received 8 of the 10 pledged donations. Just a friendly reminder to those who may have forgotten.

??? What is the point of these confusing old posts about a part purchased and installed?
