Please never use my name.

I will probably come up on the late train from Sheepscot, since I will likely have to work about 30 minutes or so on line after I get to the museum.  Hopefully not longer than that.

Still looking for a 0700 start?

Mill siding work accomplished today. I believe 150 feet of siding was put in and spiked.

Work done on Saturday Oct 28:

* Mill Siding: Brendan's pictures tell more than I can.  We laid 150' or so in muddy conditions, with occasional rain.  It all got spiked in.
* Turntable: Zack ground off the pointy parts of the bolts that were sticking up, to eliminate a possible source of injury.

Looks great! Any of the Maine two footers use derails?

I have never noticed Ben, but in place of a Derail we use a skate.

Speaking of derails, it would be a mighty good idea to install derails on all the tracks leading to the turntable. Rather re-rail something than fish it out of the pit!

Derails would be fairly easy to fabricate out of half-inch plate.

Thank you to all the volunteers who showed up for yesterday's Mill Siding Mud Wallow.  We may have had feet of clay that slowed us down but that didn't stop us.  The 60 lb. rails we used yesterday were 28 footers so we laid 140 feet of track.  It was a good day's work.  Yes, we will be adding to the mill siding some time in the future.

Nice photos!

Any chance of using the left over chair rail and other remaining 60 lb rail along the line instead of the new rail? I know the mowing crew would appreciate it.

Before I forget, I also want to thank the crew that got the ties laid out on Friday.  You made Saturday's work go a lot faster.
