Add to today's accomplishments: Cody hauled away 20 buckets of cinders from the ash pit at Sheepscot Station.

Cody and I plan to be there on Saturday. Just to be certain, Trout Brook volunteers are not arriving via train, correct?

Bill B, you have a devoted fan. Just look at him in that photo at the bathroom porch! You were so patient with him. He'll look longingly at #52 until you come back in the fall. Thank you so much for your kindness.

I?ve added a pile more photos to my WW&F Ry Google Folder from Saturday work days this year. If Cody?s not in it, he probably took it. He notices some interesting details!

Hi all, I have a very eager engineer-in-training at home. Cody's been up for three work days this spring, and he would really like to help out in some way this Saturday. If anyone has any ideas for him, I'd be grateful. Tasks involving wheelbarrows or wagons - or being in a locomotive  :)  - are especially popular. Thanks! ~Pete

I came up with:
For we stockholders love them
And we each did write a check
for they?re going to build a railroad
from Wiscasset to Quebec.

Let?s see what we can come up with.

I?m already working on a demo myself! I?m going with Wabash Cannonball. Works nicely. The second verse is a little sexist for modern listeners, so I?m leaving at least part of that out. Folk music is flexible!

41
So Mr. Naray was born in September 1855 and was a Civil War soldier?? He was 9 at the war?s end.
In any case, you guys are amazing! I think Wabash Cannonball works pretty well.

42
Thanks Ed! I'll dig around for a suitable tune, then. Should be fun!

I'm reading The WW&F Two-Footer; Hail and Farewell, which provides the lyrics to the song "The Sheepscot Narrow Gauge," but no tune. Does anyone know how it went? It has 17 verses!

The first verse goes: "Now if you'll kindly listen, I will sing a little song. / It's something new and something true, / And will not detain you long. / It is the latest song that's out And it is all the rage; / It's all about the building of the "Sheepscot Narrow Gauge." 

I'd love to sing it, so if anyone is familiar with it, please let me know.

Here's a link to a Google Photo Album with a couple of fun time-lapse movies from 5/22 Tie and Dine work.
