I'll be at Sheepscot about 7:15 to load track tools, lining bars, jacks and brush cutters on my truck. See you all then.

Work done at Albion on Nov 5, 2016:

* Rerailing flanger: Thanks to a come-along Mike brought the flanger was rerailed quickly.  It was then shoved to the south end of the track.
* Replacing ties: We replaced 8 or 9 ties.  It was challenging in some respects because the ties in some places are even with the ground. 
* Ballasting: One of Phil's friends brought a Bobcat.  The Historical Society had bought a load of gravel and a load of crushed stone.  The gravel went to build up the road entrance.  The crushed stone was dumped on the track in places that it needed it.  Then everyone worked to spread it out.
* Weed whacking: Dave whacked a few tall weeds in and around the turntable pit.  He and Bill F cut off some small tree growth that the whacker couldn't whack.
* Door knob: Stewart installed a door knob on the passenger door entrance.

Work done on Saturday November 12:

* Turntable: Leon brought in a locking mechanism he had built and Zack installed it (a sliding bolt on each end of the table that slides into a hole in the tie). 
* Wood: All the uncut wood between Bay 1 and 2 lead tracks were split (with the splitter) and stacked.
* Archives: I installed our new printer, moved some items out of the new room, and helped move a desk from downstairs to the new room.
* Switching: We spent the afternoon switching.  Coach 3 now lives in barn bay 1, 320, 309 and 65 in barn bay 2, and 103 and 8 in barn bay 3; flatcar 118 is in shop bay 1 in order to get the shingle mill pieces off the flatcar eventually, keeping it under cover.

Jason's pictures of the first train into the Woods Track to retrieve the dairy car. The dairy car was unloaded from the museum's trailer at the end of the Woods Track last month.

Anticipated work for Saturday Nov 19:

* Boxcar 67
* ROW clean up.  If we have enough people, we should clean up some of the rail by Albee's field and MP 7 and consolidate it somewhere.

Track work tomorrow, 11/17:

Change some comp bars out first thing.
If there are enough people the stand at the Whitefield Section house needs to be changed.
If time permits I would like to raise a few rough joints at the bottom of the ladder and hand tamp them.

Brush cutting needs to be done as well, this is critical for the Jan events. If needed I hope to try to gather a small crew in early December to do some brush cutting.

Adding to the rail stockpile in the parking lot would be a good idea.
At the Whitefield shed, is the intent to replace  ground-throw switch stands with available tall mast, main line types?
Does save on back strain.  ;)
