On Monday, at the end of the Fall Work Weekend I made a 13 minute video of the afternoon "Inspection Trip" from the Top of Mountain to the new End of Track.  It was a beautiful fall afternoon and the trees were in full fall colors.  We went slowly down the mountain as the rails were wet and in places were covered in leaves.  The first half where the track is ballasted is the section that was completed last Fall and Spring Work weekends.  This weekends section is un-ballasted except around the Moose Trout Brook Bridge where we put down ballast in the environmentally sensitive zone while it is still covered by our permit.

I know the museum has a Drop Box page so if someone could tell me by PM how to log onto it I will up load the video to be posted on the forum and our Facebook page.

All in all, it was a great Work Weekend and it seemed that a good time was had by all.  I know I enjoyed renewing friendships and working with a wonderful team of folks to further the aspirations of our Museum and returning railroading to the Sheepscot valley.

Keith, Same issue, I don't know how to post on YouTube. 

FWIW, I am still trying to get over my aches and pains from all the activity with a torn knee meniscus.  A smarter person would have stayed home, but I was not about to miss participating in a Work Weekend at my favorite Railroad.
