What will the electric building look like?

It will be the shape of a lighting bolt.  The most challenging building we've ever built.

I'm shocked.

Our good neighbor at the TOM did some earth work around the recently installed mainline switch. Jason sent these pictures of the finished product.

Steve, thanks for all the great updates, it really helps us who can’t make it to Maine because of the Covid unpleasantness. Perhaps a few pictures of coach 9, the electric building and the trailer.

Hello you all. I'm happy about  learning of 13 volunteers were on the spot right in the middle of the week. It's downright amazing to see the commitement and dedication you display  to achieve your goal over that terrible crisis. Bravo you all, but above all stay safe.
