 On the AMTP like once on the SNCF it 's chemically pure lead and  you need  to get the knack to have it grip properly to the inside of the brass plug.

Hi  Any timetable for #10 to return to rails?  We know it's been a tough spring for temperature and hope that it warms up soon for you all.  We are trying to visit the weekend of the 19th in August with grandson and family and are looking forward to it!

Like with #9, it will be done when it's done.  We're hoping by Victorian Christmas, I think, but we'll see.  Having the extra locomotive would be quite helpful.

Thank you, James.  I meant to say we are looking forward to our visit with or without #10!  We know that restoration is a lengthy process.  Here in Maryland boilers also have to be approved and pass state tests.  Same in Maine?

Yes. #10's new boiler must pass state inspections. We have been working with Boothbay Railway Village to ensure this is all done properly.

As with everything, completion time is also dependant on volunteer availability. We have a number of major projects underway currently, and would welcome any help anyone can give on them. Even if it doesn't mean helping directly with #10, your assistance could free someone else to do so.

To volunteer... show up! (on any Saturday.) Or if you have availability during the week, let us know.

Hi Ed et al, Sorry to say that my health precludes making many trips to Maine.  We are planning to be up there the third weekend in August.  I am versed in MSWord and Excel and would be happy to assist if any documentation can be worked on down here in MD.  I of course can read PDF but do not have the PDF write program.  Looking forward to August.

If you have MSWord 2007 or later, there is an option to publish the document as a .PDF

Thanks Roger, yes I do have 2007 or later.  Just not use to having to use PDF files.  No sweat.
