* Masons - About 40 Masons had their annual cookout at Alna Center.  The evening crew brought them back to Sheepscot at 6:30 with #52.  Everyone we spoke to said they had a good afternoon and thanked us for helping make their event special.  There were a number of new first time riders that said they would come back to ride with family.  Some photos of the event will be on fb tomorrow night.

About six years ago, I brought a friend of mines modified Rock Island signal maintainer's Briggs and Stratton powered rail car. It was adjustable from standard gauge to 2' gauge.
I was allowed to make one after hours round trip to then end of track.

Anticipated work for weekend of Saturday June 25:

* Turntable forms - I guess Jeff Verney is supposed to dig out the pit this week.  So we may be putting forms in the ground.
* Boxcar 67
* Top of Mountain Mills grading?

Jeff digs the hole the first week of July.  This week (and Saturday) will be rebar bending and tying.

Work done on Saturday June 25:

* Top of Mountain: Mike was busy grading, breaking the dozer and fixing it.
* Percival House: Some dirt was scattered around the west side of the house to change water flow, and keep it away from the foundation.  The old west side stairs were moved to west side of the parking lot, which seems to be have become our storage facility for stuff we don't quite know what to do with.
* Loco 9: Marcel was doing some trim work on the cab.

Not a lot of volunteers around, maybe everyone will be around on Independence Weekend.

I have marked my best guess on the location of the water pipe and phone/alarm pipe that run through this area. I believe that Brendan and Stewart will take it from here.

I did not convert the trailer to run on rails quick enough. Brendan has found a use for it. He wants to keep the timbers mobile to ensure the contractor has room to dig
