Museum Discussion / Drawings for the headlamp on engine No. 9

Are there drawings available of the headlamp made for engine No. 9 or at least major dimensions one could use to make a model?

Will there be volunteer activities this Saturday 1-16-21 even though the events have been cancelled?  If so, what time and where?

Greetings!  My name is Jay Wiley from Brunswick.  I have been a life long (almost 60 year) modeler starting off with plastic model cars and planes and balsa planes.  I had an HO train layout in the basement back in junior high and high school but never got back to it after going to college and all that other life stuff.  Three years ago I started a 4 ft x 8 ft layout with a Bachmann "The General" American 4-4-0 set "for the three grand kids".  Well, I now now have four DC powered steam engines and five DCC (Digital Command Control) engines with sound and the layout is 5-1/2 ft wide and 16-1/2 ft long.  I "discovered" your amazing museum about a 1-1/2 ago and have ridden a few times when other hobbies and work allowed.  I have taken my grand kids on a W.W.&F. ride last fall and rode the last Harvest Bonfire train this past weekend which was great fun.  I am fascinated by the operation of the steam engines and amazed at the work the museum has done rebuild it.  I look forward to opportunities to continue to learn and explore and hopefully become part of the volunteer group.  Thank you for all you do.  Jay Wiley
