Volunteers / Re: MANAGER NEEDED FOR ONGOING ISSUE...

Well dang. Seems like no one cares much for pipes. I was sort of hoping for a bagpipe lament when I take my last ride on the WW&F to Top of the Mountain.

What a great story! I agree with Benjamin. The Corps of Engineers guy had some feelings about what happened to the Ramsdell farm. I hope we'll be able to obtain copies and distribute this tribute far and wide.

Should we be having a conversation with the Conservancy folks about integrating their trail(s) with ours? One of their trails end across Trout Brook from our property, lacking only a bridge over the stream to connect to the road to Porcupine Palace, I believe. Figuring out how to connect with the Head Tide ROW trail may be a more difficult goal.

While I agree that a more substantial gate is necessary at the edge of Route 218, I think the vast majority of motorists will just whiz on by and won't even notice the engine.

Museum Discussion / Builder's plate raffle in two weeks
« on: September 25, 2021, 11:07:35 AM »
Only Two Weeks Left - The special drawing for winners of the two  replica Baldwin builders plates will be held on October 9th.  A few tickets are still available: $11 each or two for $20.  The winning ticket gets the full size bronze replica and the second prize is the (smaller) 3-D printed plastic replica.  You need not be at the railroad to win, winners will be notified.  Stop by the gift shop on a Saturday or purchase raffle tickets at wwfry.org/raffle to support the building of our brand new steam locomotive #11.

If you go to YouTube and type in "Victorian Iron Horse Roundup," you will find many, many videos of these historic events.

Was the ring rail for the turntable part of the "kit," or do we have to bend rails to form it?

My apologies. I’m traveling right now so don’t have access to all the stuff on my home computer. I’ll give it another try when I get home.

We really should produce a video showing how all this works.

As always, I am amazed and proud of the amount of important work accomplished by these very dedicated weekly volunteers, as reported faithfully by Steve Lennox. I am in awe of you folks.

I believe at least some of the J&S works is now occupied by Delaware Car Co. It's visible from the Amtrak line.

Just the other day I saw a photo taken at the Didcot Railway Centre in England of locomotives similarly posed, and I though it would be cool to do the same thing at the WW&F. Now you guys have done it! Congratulations.
