A little long James? I was very thankful you guys did not want to bump it to 4 for me like I asked..

Anyhow, it is not very often I am accused of cutting corners, but today it was true. We cut the very tip top of the TOM area. As James said, this opens up a whole area for our photographers. And here we go with the photos..

After, Jerry in about the same spot.

And now to fill in the day.

A smokey start for Brian, Jerry and I.

Trying to catch Brian cutting the tree down with Jerry pushing as James looks on, but as you can see I was a little slow (actually Brian is that quick)

Post by: Alan Downey on February 19, 2021, 11:16:53 AM
I'll be working on equipment in the shop for a few weekends, including this Saturday. This will include some cleaning, paint stripping, and repainting of the radial arm drill. If we have newer volunteers looking for a project to land on (especially after Steam and Saws wraps up) I'll be able to use a couple of folks. I'm going to try and save the more general work for days when I have some help to try and create that opening.


On Wednesday, Jason and I went to Mountain Machine Works in Auburn to pick up our 10 new axles. Mountain Machine donated half the value of the fully machined axles which was a tremendous donation of value, and also saved us a huge amount of labor due to their CNC production methods. We brought a letter signed by Dave and presented it to the owner who plans to come out to the railroad for a visit in the future. For now, the axles are in my garage on my trailer. I'll be bringing them to the museum on a dry day so we can stash them away. The mating 20 new wheels will be delivered this coming week, and the 10 wheelsets will facilitate boxcar 56's re-wheeling, coach 9's new trucks, and add two spares into the operations department pool for swap out when maintenance concerns arise. #11 will be getting larger diameter axles and so it's wheels will be ordered late this year, or early next.

Partial report for 2/20:

* Top of Mountain cutting: 3 saws going, maybe 8 people there?  We were cutting south of the spur track.  Pretty thick in there so we did a lot of cutting but didn't seem like we got far.
* Things were happening with boxcar 56 and the machine shop, but I didn't visit the shop after I came back to SS for lunch.\
* Steam & Sleighs: parking lot was full.

We got a lot done but did not cover much area. Lots of trees... And I forgot some before pics, so look back to last weeks photos and maybe it is in the background..

First picture I took.. Fred wanted to cut a tree down.
(https://i.postimg.cc/tTDVrCJW/0220211104-HDR.jpg)

Then Brian picks up around the other pile, shortly after Jerry and I restocked the pile in front. Will get real hot in a second.

(https://i.postimg.cc/KvjtHLnz/0220211344-HDR.jpg)

Then I walked to the PPB (Porcupine Palace Boulevard) and took these next shots, starting south where we were cutting today

(https://i.postimg.cc/KvWtSzN5/0220211346a-HDR.jpg)

Brian brought his pole saw and cut the limbs that were obstructing the view down the mountain. This will be a great photo/video location as a train works up the steepest part of the Mountain. We have got a little clean up to do getting some large pines that fell out of view. Kubota work I think..

(https://i.postimg.cc/FRhLgJrh/0220211526-HDR.jpg)

Looking south at what we cut last weekend, with the limbs removed it really opens it up.

(https://i.postimg.cc/0QvpWBfR/0220211531.jpg)

One of the trees laying on the right I want to clean up.

(https://i.postimg.cc/V6FX3WGS/0220211531-HDR.jpg)

And Jerry suggested that I take a before picture of next weeks work. So here it is..

I want to cut at least one more day up there so come join while you can.

I keep telling the guys I'm getting tired of seeing the same 10 or 12 people every week. We can't wait either. The first work weekend we can have safely we better plan on no work getting done.. Just lots of catching up. Unless of course Fred is around. Then you better catch up quick because he doesn't stop for long.

We worked very hard this morning to beat the weather at TOM. Even with the shortened day, we got a decent amount done. I anticipate this was the last session for cutting there for this winter. Next weekend, Sheepscot.

We had been going for about an hour and a half at this point.

11am. Pretty much done for the day.

For now we are just thining, and removing the weaker trees. They are so dense that the firs and poplar are dying. We are leaving the bigger trees unless they are in the way. The area will be stumped and leveled eventually, giving more useable space.
