Nice work on the benches, Mike.

Back in 1881, due to the success of the Sandy River RR, there was talk of building a 2 foot gauge line from Phillips to the Kennebec river. The question arose as to which city on the Kennebec would be the destination. Both Augusta and Gardiner wanted to be that destination. There was a map in the Kennebec Journal which may be the one in the book. A couple railroads were chartered, the Franking & Kennebec and the Kennebec Central (not to be confused with the Kennebec Central that ran to Togus). Neither was built. There is quite a bit of info in the Phillips Phonograph Journal.

What are those odd looking wheel sets behind the work flat?

You're making fast progress assembling the cart.

Very impressive. Great idea of using a roller conveyor to help position the beams.

Thanks, Mike. It will be an interesting piece of equipment, once built.

Jason,

After looking at the plans, I have a couple questions. Are the jackstands extended/retracted hydraulically? How does the excavator fit on the cart?
