I would like to start at Mp7 and work north to ToM. Most of the east side between Rosewood and ToM was done a few weeks ago. If time permits I may try to squeeze in a track inspection but we will see.

Joe, 

I just found out that I will have a much larger block of time in Maine this summer.  In remembering a conversation we had during the FWW, and if it hasn't happened by then, I plan on finishing replacing the missing joint bar bolts, then, if nothing else is more pressing, I will work on changing out the joint bars that are rubbing the wheel flanges.

Rather than cut trees, I will be at Sheepscot working on organizing stored stuff. It is supposed to be cold, so there won't be much dirt moving, but I have a plan on starting to clear out the parking lot.

We probably need to move tie parking markers out of the way, so that we can plow if needed.

The hydro fluid and engine oil has been changed in the truck so the plow can go on Saturday.

Work done on Saturday December 10:

* Weed whack: Joe and Greg whacked weeds from MP 7 down to Top O' Mountain on both sides before lunch.
* Boxcar 67: Zack and Dwight put on more floor on the boxcar.  Getting close to 3/4 done.  All truck parts appear to be together on floor.  "Some assembly required."
* Parking lot cleanup: I hope Mike took a "before" picture this morning.  Many 2-3 foot stubs of ties were stored near the woods track, most of the rest went to the junk man at the end of Cross Road.  Timbers, ties, boards, etc. etc. were moved or put on the burn pile, which was a pile of random lumber west of the garage and behind the machines stored for resale.  Mike managed to move most of the power line poles onto a storage pile beyond the parking area on the west side.  Mike was starting to move the short trailer to between the garage and woods track when I left, and he was also going to try to move the big trailer and the Yeti out of the way (the key to the Yeti is in NH, so moving it would be challenging).  When I left there was room for many more cars to park.  Oh, and we took up the parking lot row marker ties.
* Winter prep: The Dodge now has its snowplow on.  #52's plow was moved from the parking lot to next to a track, but didn't make it on the engine.

I wish I would have taken a before picture. A very progressive effort today, and we gained about 10 spots. And looks much more presentable.

Also more charter clean up was done today as well. JB, Greg, and I relocated a culvert from in front of the Whitefield section house to being beside the tip cars next to the woods track.

A very productive day.

Hello folks,

If you are able to or are planning on attending Victorian Christmas and can assist with crew, we are still several people short of filling out the crew sheet.  Unless you responded to the crew caller email, please respond here if you are able to come, or if you were already planning on coming (to confirm).  This call includes volunteers who are not train crew qualified- we need all the help we can get!

Crew Meeting Saturday Morning 9:30AM Sheepscot Station.

Thank you,
Jason
