Charlie,

That time falls within my summer visit and I can make plans not to take that Friday off to be with my wife so when the team leaders let us know what they want, we can tackle something.  As it now stands I will be on the train crew on the weekend, but usually arrive early enough to do a little work before tackling train crew duties.

When I work at museum and camp, I stay at Chewonki Campground.
Campground is south of Wiscasset behind the local airport.

Interesting. Ossipee Music Festival is in West Ossipee. The rr station still stands. In fact all three rr stations in town still stand.
I live in Center Ossipee.

Bill and Charlie: that last weekend of July will be prime bridge time.  While we don’t know the day by day until we’re closer, nearly certain there’ll be bridge work on our plate.  The influx of volunteers will be welcome.

Thanks!
Jason

Work "wish list" for weekend of July 14 2018:

* Mountain Extension
* Bridge: staining?  Wood preservative?
* Track work
* Caboose 320
* Board meeting Saturday evening although there's a move afoot to move it to the 21st.

As a side note: Sunday afternoon at 2 PM our own Roger Whitney will be playing the pump organ at the Head Tide Church.  Although you can't take the train there yet.

Bill,

If we arrive on Friday, it will likely be in the afternoon. I think Sofia plays around 11 and then we will be off headed north. Will steam be running both Saturday and Sunday? Would really like to see the forney in action!

All;
As James mentioned there indeed was a move afoot to move the Board meeting. Fearing the lack of a quorum and after polling the directors and other hangers-on, I have decided to postpone the July Board of Directors meeting until July 21, 2018 at 4:00 p.m. I apologize if this inconveniences any of you. My plans for a record-breaking attempt for the shortest Board meeting have gone aground.

So, Jason, what's on the plate for next week? I should be arriving the 16th, sometime in the afternoon.

Jeff,
Next week he plans on bridge cobstruction. He has the timber crib to construct, silt fencing to do at the bridge site, more staining on the bridge if not yet completed, temporary bridge spans to move and get ready, tie cribbing to prep, and some other projects in the shop that need tending to..

Volunteers will be needed and welcome Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Saturdays every day this summer. Note that lunch is not provided on weekdays. Other "critical" work days will be posted when they are determined.

Work done today, 7/11/18

Track work was done on the Water Tower switch, as well as looking at a few other things around the yard.

Work was then done with a decent sized crew on the mountain to allow work to continue with grading. See photos on the Mountain thread.

Back at Sheepsot a crew continued staining the bridge and prepping other materialsfor the bridge.

-Note: all names have been removed to protect the parties identity. In all honesty, I didn't want to leave anyone out and my memory with names is terrible.
Track laborer, roadmaster, general laborer, and much more.

Crew call!  Tuesday, July 17 will be a big day.  Prep for abutments on site, including survey, hand leveling, silt fencing, haying.  Locating piles, etc.  If we have enough crew we’ll leave some folks at Sheepscot to continue abutment assembly. 

If we REALLY have enough folks, we’ll all line up along both sides of the bridge, pick it up, walk it north up 218, then walk it across the brook.

The last part is optional...

See ya
Jason

Work done on Saturday July 14:

* Mountain Extension: Mike moved the equipment from north of the bridge to end of the track.   Don't know what else he did.
* Bridge: Alan and crew started putting queenposts on one of the temp bridges.  Basically smaller sections of I-beams.  The truss rods will be rails.  Also people were slopping more preservative on the approach timbers.
* Weed whacking: A crew worked at Trask Crossing (sorry I forgot about it).

That (and train operations) was kind of it, as far as I could see.  Not a lot of projects happening today.
