Museum Discussion / Plowing Ahead - Snow removal discussion
« on: March 04, 2023, 10:16:42 PM »
It seems to me the snow has come later in Maine and  Alna than the previous years but now it looks like to catching up  on the time. Have a nice Sunday Mike.
Yeah man, ... I've been saying for over 10 years now that it seems like they've been pushing winter just a little more to the right each year. ;)

Museum Discussion / Music Festival?
« on: September 30, 2014, 11:24:01 PM »
I have been saying for a while now we should consider a weekend long music festival of some kind. Let's hope this event continues and someday grows to the point where we'll need to use Albee's Field to host it. ;)

Volunteers / Victorian Christmas 2013

I assume it's not to early to discuss this.
What's the date for the event this year?

Aside from the obvious "Bert & I" connections, humor and railroading go HAND-IN-HAND!
Think about it,...

Maine Narrow Gauge RR Co. & Museum / News and updates?
« on: February 17, 2009, 07:07:20 PM »
Since the old MNGRR forum is (apparently) toasted beyond recognition, might I suggest using this space for news/updates on MNGRR< at least til they get a new server?
I'd love to know what else is going on up there. ;)

Maine Narrow Gauge RR Co. & Museum / More MNGRR Forum troubles?
« on: January 25, 2009, 11:03:57 PM »
Something seems to  be up wih the MNGRR Forum on Phbb!
Apparently (according to the message) the site is under "New Management" and should be available by "tomorow night"... (but who knows when that is?)
Apparently it needs "any forum member" with thier full "Forum URL" to request it's being unlocked.

Museum Discussion / Recieved: SEP/OCT 08 Newsletter!
« on: September 27, 2008, 02:17:45 PM »
Just got my September/Ocober '08 WW&FRR Museum Newsletter in the mail today. I was DULY impressed! While it may not have been the biggest ever, it was ceartainly one of the "meatiest."
After seeing all the grants the museum has recieved recently on a single page, one TRULY gets a feel for how well recognized the museum is. Add to that that amongst the NRHS grants given, WW&F got the largest of 13! Now THAT'S impressive!
Also, re-reading the naratives of the brake-equipment instalations on Coach 8 & flat 126 was still captivating, ev en though I remember reading the entire narritive (from BOTH authors) on  here not so long ago.  ;)
I think of all the reports on #9's progress this was perhaps the most detailed and most encouraging, as it points to things going back together after the complete dissasembly.
And that's not to mention the report of the anual picnic & photo shoot which my  daughter and I were fortunate enough to attend. ;D
The folks who crank out the newsletters definitely need and deserve credit and support for thier role in keeping those of us "from-away-ers" informed on the progress "Up Nah-th!"
Great job guys! Hope to see yu all around Thanksgiving time  ;D

Maine Narrow Gauge RR Co. & Museum / Franklin St?
« on: August 04, 2008, 02:35:09 PM »
What's the word on the RR getting back to Franklin Street? Is the developer that won the bid the more "NG Friendly" one?
Word from the museum (except for the B&SR flanger) has been pretty scarce lately.
