Anticipated work for weekend of August 20:

It's the week after the picnic so probably not a lot of volunteers around.

* Turntable - hole drilling, preserving, dealing with the forms
* Boxcar 67
* Top of Mountain stuff
* Archives - Linda received a new printer and new scanner, so I think I'm going to be involved in the setup of that!  Which means Linda would be happy if someone could be in the gift shop for her.

On Monday 15th, Fred and Dwight finished cutting the small trees growing in the grass and weeds along the ROW. We started at mile post 7 and ended at the south top of mountain switch. This project was started early this spring in  Sheepscot yard.

Work done on Saturday August 20:

* Boxcar 67: Zack was making mortises (the holes) for roof wood.
* Turntable: Several people tackled the forms left from the center pour.  Four sides got removed.
* Yard sale: Linda was cleaning up and consolidating from the yard sale in the basement
* Archives: The printer is here, and I started to set that up before getting pulled away on something else.

Also -

* Turntable - Jonathan machined the rest of the spider wheels.  Bob and Kerry applied more wood preservative to the bridge beams.

* Picnic - The coolers and folding chairs were removed from the shop building and hauled to the basement to be set up for the FWW dining hall.  The front of the shop building was swept out and cleaned of other left over stuff from the picnic.

* House - Sonya Wyllie did a nice job cleaning the kitchen and rest rooms.

* Lunch - Fred made a nice meal for us. It was just like the old days except Kerry made extra items for desert and cut watermellon slices for us.  Thanks!!

This Saturday is the second Ice Cream Social for the 12:30, 1:30 and 2:30 trains so we need help with setting out extra cars at Alna Center and serving visitors who arrive by train.

If by chance the Brookville gets shuffled Saturday, could it be left where I can easily use it Sunday morning?

Mike...am assuming (oops) you'll be retrieving the Kubota and Case-y Twins from TOM to continue turntable sitework, now that all concrete is poured and after formwork cleared.   :-\

Our contractor will do more backfill work and then Zack will run pipe for the rain leaders.  When the drainage pipes are set, more crushed rock will be brought in and road cloth will be spread on top for the sand/loam covering.
