I might also mention that some attention was given to organizing and consolidating parts of No. 10 to Bay 1, which also benefited from the cleanup of the corner where the nuts and bolts are kept. Several items of scrap value were moved out as well. At the same time, some organization was carried out in the newly-painted container in order to maximize the shelf space and clear items off the floor to allow safe passage from the doors to the rear of the box. Thanks to all the folks who helped with both projects.

Anticipated work for Saturday October 14.  This is the first weekend of the "shoulder" season, which means only 3 trains and Saturday-only operation.

Not sure what to put down to do after the work weekend, but probably:

* Boxcar 67 work resumes, now that Zack has his level floor.
* Ballasting the new track at the north end.
* Any reballasting needed in Sheepscot Yard.  We should put some ballast down on the east side of the main line in the yard so that in the near future we can jack and tamp that.
* Ballast needs for the Woods track.
* Bridge reconstruction.
* Board meeting Saturday at 4.

I am going north with the Brookville, unless a stone train is running, to put the finishing touch on a plaque, plus measure a repair location.

* The Vic Hamburger memorial tree was planted yesterday, the memorial stone arrived this morning, and the dedication ceremony was this evening.
Please (somebody on site) make sure that the tree gets 5 gallons of water a day until the ground freezes. A newly transplanted tree won't be able to absorb most of the water, so it needs that much just to get a little.

Russ, we were told 5 gallons twice a week by the nursery. I put 5 on Sunday and, presumably Steve Z did it today.

Regular watering next summer would be a good idea as well. The first year after planting is a critical period while the tree gets its new roots established.

Dave,

Will someone need to be assigned the tree watering duty?

Jeff;
I'm hoping Steve Z or Stewart will handle Wednesdays. I'll try to remember to do it on Saturdays if I'm around.

Thanks Stewart. I left a bucket by the spigot by the new ramp.

Jeff, since you knew him so well, and spoke so eloquently on Saturday, please feel free to add in the details.
