Don't buy a new lawn mower!!!! I'm going to bring my landlord's mower over next week so we can have 2 to use.  It need engine work but it runs It's only 2-3 years old.Fred

The W.W.& F. RR members plan to return Nov. 6, 2021 to continue work on the bay 2 track into your new car barn. Let's hope the weather is as good as last year.

Volunteers / Sandy River and Rangley Lakes Railroad work trip.

This years work trip is planned for November 6th 2021, We will leave Sheepscot Station at 7:00 am. It takes about 2 hours to get to Phippips Me. Last years trip was a great success. I'd like people who went there last year to comment on their experience. Hope to see you there helping build track into the new car barn.

I'm trying to get a group of wwandf volunteers to come up on the 7th of Nov. this fall to look around and also help you folks trying to get you tracks into the new car barn. That is the day we use to go to Albion to help them each year, last year we did not go there as there was no work for us to do. We usually can get about 6 to 10 people to go on these trips It's always fun to help the other narrow gauge museums and get a little time away from out own place. At our board meeting last night I was told I could put up a notice to let out people know about it. Of course everything depends on the weather. 

Work and Events / Top of the Mountain Siding - Official Work Thread
« on: March 13, 2016, 06:44:15 AM »
This winter we have cleared from the edge of the old R.O.W. 75 feet westward and 300 feet parallel to the main line. If we add in the 33 feet cleared years ago, it gives us 108 feet westward from the center line of the mainline track. That should give Rick's survey team plenty of room to plot the curve of the siding so when we start cutting next winter, we can clear that area first. It will probably be done after the stumps are removed.

Museum Discussion / Maintaining Right-of-Way

It was brought up in "Dreaming of going South", that maintaining the ROW as we build more tracks North or South that we will have a problem keeping the grass cut. As one of the very few members that cut the grass for 2 and 3/4 miles on both sides of the ROW I see it every year. Some of our ROW have had the trees cut off the full 66 Ft. wide, most of it 50 Ft. wide and some 40 Ft. wide as per the former owners. Starting in July it takes until Nov. to complete it. We did not get it finished last year mostly due to rain. It also takes us away from doing other important things. We now have the Row-Mow 4 Ft. mower which should take care of cutting the ditches. Here are a few ideas.

1. Cut the grass on 1/2 of the ROW one year and the rest the next year.
2. Cut less width, maybe 15 or 20 Ft. each side of the center line and let the rest grow up.

3 When we do go North or South cut less width on ROW.

Any more ideas?

Volunteers / Summer Work Week
« on: July 13, 2011, 03:07:28 PM »
Very few people cutting grass so far this week, will probably do away with the summer work week next year and instead have a try at 6 work Fridays instead, will have to talk it over with the board. Maybe a few people will be able to get one or Two fridays off. Any suggestions !
