The "finished"  roundhouse lead is only half spiked every other tie.

I did give Fred a very little help. Hauled one load of fire wood from Alna Center.

A hand brake wheel, shaft and other small parts were cleaned of old yellow paint. These will be mounted on to flat 14. Some machine work may be required before the parts are painted Black and mounted.

Hi Paul, The amount of ballast unloaded depends on the amount of members that show up to unload the flat cars.  One flat car load will ballast 2 rail lengths. Less if there is a dip in the leveled grade.

Car barn. Weather has been rain from last Sunday. This Saturday is the first sunny day.

Last Saturday two members were working on 14. Photo's were posted on WW&F forum and WW&F Facebook site

Graham Buxton

In Wiscasset on route 1 south of the town center is Schooner Inn and Wiscasset Woods Lodge. Wiscasset Woods Lodge may be closed for the season.

There are more places to stay north of Wiscasset in Edgecome.

Plus south of Wiscasset in Bath there are more motels/inns.

Anthony Vo  The wood parts to build new coach #9 (a copy of coach 3) have arrived at the museum. The local lumber company has received the 40 foot logs from the state of Washington. They will cut the logs for the coach frame when the museum needs them. My guess is after the new flat car for tank car 14 is finished.

I always put a spike in one spike hole.  Tie plate is put on the ground with the spike head under the plate. Makes a good handle to move the plate to the next tie to be spiked.

One truck will be removed and have brake rigging hooked up. The work on the truck will take place sometime this summer or fall while we are waiting for the roofer.

The rest of the brakes on the box car will be mounted after the tin roof is installed.

Wood roof walks will be installed.

A few handholds need mounting on top of the box car. 

The brake wheel with it's long shaft can than be mounted.

67 still need the safety chains installed on each end.

Linkage between cut levers and couplet's need to be installed
