All the remaining rail is expected to arrive Wednesday morning and we would appreciate any help we can get unloading the trucks. The trucks should begin arriving around 8 am.

My arrival is dependent on how early I can get Bernie moving. We'll get there when we get there, I guess.

Thanks to everyone who plans on helping unload rail tomorrow.  Five truck loads will take a while but more hands makes it easier. 

Weather:  It's 34 and snowing right now but Weds - Sat will be mostly sunny with temps in the mid 50's.

I wish I could be there to help out! (Why couldn't the trucks come this Saturday rather than Wednesday?)

It's much better to have the truck show up prior to both the photo Charter on Thursday and the work week end starting on Friday. Mainly due to parking lot constraints. This will make the forklift operators life a lot easier not needing to worry about a bunch of vehicles in the yard.

The first of 5 truckloads was just unloaded.  Final 4 tomorrow between 7am and noon.

Anticipated work for April 27 - May 1

* Rail: Four truckloads of rail are due to arrive today, Wednesday April 27.  All four to be unloaded today too!
* Photo Excursion: Thursday is our second Spring photo excursion charter.  Please be in contact with the crew at Sheepscot if you want to volunteer that day so they can sure they know you're supposed to be there (ie, you're not freeloading on the charter!).
* Spring Work Weekend: Friday - Sunday. 
- Track laying at Top of Mountain, down the grade to the washout.
- Stoning/jacking/tamping track in the North Yard, to get that as completely into service as possible.
- Feeding hungry people.
- Boxcar 67
- Electrical work in the garage.
- Saturday noon ceremony at Alna Center to unveil a memorial to Julius Stuck.
- And other stuff that I can't think of right now.

The woods track has ties and rail laid out for 150 feet; the Lincoln Academy High School kids did that yesterday.  If everything else goes swimmingly hats ready to be tackled. 

I also hope to have a small crew continuing to move equipment in the shop, as well as getting the seep throat riveter into service.

Some of that rail needs holes drilled.  The rails are off center to allow starter spikes to be driven.

See ya

In the basement of the Percival House there is a large chest filled with old clothes (mostly coats) that look to be "period clothing". Feel free to grab/take/use whatever you like, in case you find yourself in someone's shot.
