General Discussion / A few grunts needed in Brunswick
« on: November 08, 2023, 07:07:20 AM »
Hi all,
On Wednesday 11/15, I have 25 yards of concrete coming to Brunswick around 9 in the morning. That's assuming the weather cooperates. I could really use the help of a few people to get it moved around if anyone was planning to be bored that day. I'd be deeply grateful!
207-319-9812 or THANKS!!

Cody and I also gathered up all the water fire extinguishers and put them in the Percival basement. There’s still one hiding somewhere. If you spot it, please let me know.

If that's the smokebox -- I'd forgotten how small 10's boiler is compared to 9.
I spent part of yesterday getting a little bit up to speed on #10, since Cody and I have never seen it intact or outside of Bay 1. I found some interesting photos from the past.

The 2015 Victorian Christmas thread has great photos of the two locos together for comparison:,2610.0.html

And within that thread, Kevin Madore shared a link to his Flickr album of the event with some more comparisons:

Have the dates of the next Build 11 session been determined?

Is there any chance Lee might put the passenger platform back together?

I will say I am very pleased to see the use of the tarp for ash removal. It contains the mess very nicely.
Credit to Roger. The tarp is folded up inside the cab and is waiting for the next crew to use before firing up.

Update on Brunswick-Rockland service:

"...the Brunswick-Rockland service will launch in about a month and run Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays. The train car, powered by a diesel engine, has restrooms, air conditioning and “bigger windows than Amtrak,” Betke said. A second 76-seat train car is expected soon after the service launches. Ticket prices are still being determined.

Midcoast Railservice, Amtrak and the Maine Department of Transportation have discussed using the Coastliner to extend Amtrak service from the Brunswick Visitor’s Center to Rockland, possibly next year."

There are secrets to master…
This thread has been quiet since last summer, but I just thought it was worth showing how things have progressed in the last year. Here's Dan Malkowski demonstrating that the turntable's secrets have been mastered.

The August Build 11 Work days are the 15th, 16th and 17th.
What's planned for the August work days? I really enjoyed joining you in July!

Hi John,
Since posting this, I did find someone to work with. Thanks for inquiring. I'm pretty sure it would have to be a Maine license anyway.
Thanks again,

Hi All,
I live 30 minutes from the museum, and I'm planning to put up a steel building for a workshop this year. I'm stuck because my building inspector wants me to get an engineer's stamp on drawings for the concrete pad (unless I pour 4-foot frost walls), and I haven't found anyone who will get back to me. Is there anyone out there who might be able to help? THANKS!

I believe the only Christmas Crisis ever to have elicited more panic had to do with an Electrified Reindeer Schnoz.

Everybody has to do a Christmas album.
Track three: Oh Little Town of Sheepscot, or of Albion. Maybe it's Wis-cas-set

You can take mine out of the pile. I finally paid up for life.
