I think Wayne is referring to the new training shovel that has come out for shovel newbies.  It comes with a two leg outrigger that folds down like a bicycle kickstand when you're ready to park your shovel.   :o

Apparently the word has not yet gotten to Maine. No need for people to hold up shovels. A new, self standing model has been released recently.

Well that means that half of the State work crews can be laid off.  Our governor will like that.

Hey everyone, I will be at the railroad at 7:00a.m., if not before on Tuesday and Wednesday for two very long days of prep. Those who can help, please feel free to arrive any time. Tuesday will be a very busy day as we have rail to drill, ties to load (possibly), and much more. Wednesday, time permitting we may lay out ties for replacement.

Joe,

I should arrive at the museum around lunchtime Wednesday, provided Southwest doesn't cancel my flight.

It won't be to much help for the prep but I plan on arriving a little before noon on Thursday for the final push.  Can't miss lunch of course.

Jeff that will be great. I will be away from Sheepscott for a few hours around Lunch, but hope to return by 2 or 3 to finish up what I need to get done.

That will give me time to get unpacked and put my work clothes on, as well as eat lunch. I'm sure Fred will be there and get me caught up with all that's been going on.

For the time being, all the ties are cut. Two bundles are left for bridge work. Perhaps they should be stacked for drying.
