Work and Events / Re: Rescheduling the SWW? Speculation Thread

Maybe Mr. Kokas' idea of mini-weekends is worth exploring. I would be up for the idea of scheduled days to work with a small group spreading ballast. Maybe when we can get a better handle on how bad things are going to get and whether travel restrictions will be in place this could be do-able.

I really enjoy the work weekends and it is such a shame that this strange world development is infringing on our fun! The SWW has been on my mind most of the day and I was afraid that the crisis would be far from over by the end of next month. I'm sure that I speak for many of us when I say that I would gladly come up at a later time. I know that the momentum of this museum's efforts will not be halted by this thing, only slowed a bit.

A real nice segmant. I think the interviews were very informative and do a great job of conveying the idea of the important role the WW&F played in providing a lifeline for the Sheepscot valley. And it also shows that it's cool!

Another beautiful video! You've captured the Portland Forney in its natural habitat!

Very nicely done!

Sweet!

I hope to make it up for two days. Friday-Saturday or Saturday-Sunday. I'm not very accurate, but I do enjoy the work. Really looking forward to this big push!

I'm guessing Mike was doing a little Southern valve gear research for a WW&F Prairie. I saw 630's sister, #722, a few times during my Southern years. Good sturdy engines.

I thought the whole thing was a bit scary! But no lack of nerves in Romania!

That is an impressive 2 footer! I love the Pennsy whistle too! That's probably the cleanest that engine has been since it left Porter!

I found this instructional video for ramp use. Thought it might be helpful for exchanging locomotives.

Wow! That was quick work! And it looks like mainline quality!

Alain, I'm glad you enjoyed the video. In looking at the AMTP website, i see that you have a beautiful and fascinating collection. Those German locoomotives, 080 DFB?, must be rugged little engines. One line down in the Balkans used a group of them for mainline power into the 60's.
