Let's keep the firing to the locomotives, shall we? <g>

   from the web page that shows the current equipment, excursion car 103 was built by Edaville in 1963.  Coach 8 is also listed as being built by Edaville in 1985.  I do not know where the hardware originated - whether it was new or reclaimed from other equipment.
All the best,

Hello Stewart, you mention red lead, which is in fact exactly what was used, and was also used by boat builders on wooden hulls.
To my knowledge, red lead is still available for commercial and marine use.  I worked for a few years on the Schooner Heritage, out of Rockland, and she is entirely primed in red lead paint.  I don't know if it makes sense to use it, or if it would even fall under the industrial category at a museum, but a sample could probably be obtained to try and get a more accurate color if this is desired.  The attached picture shows the bowsprit of the Heritage with a large area of it covered in red lead.  Is this the color that others remember?
For what it is worth.
All the best,
Reuben Bailey

The Original W&Q and WW&F: 1894-1933 / Re: WW&F on Google Earth

Yes, I had to delete the old post on the GE forum and repost it.  I had changed the routes to show where the museum has extended the clearing north, and the old post wouldn't show the changes when I tried to re-upload the file.


Here is a link to the files from my guesses on the FS&K route.  The old forum has a good discussion about it.  I can't tell if people are still planning on using the old forum or not, so I figured that I would bring these over here.
