Are there "due dates" for the other tests?

 Has work on #10 been restarted or when is a restart planed/contemplated? Or have other projects taken priority for now?

Wouldn't some type of formal/legal organization have to be formed first? Then raise funds (sell stock) and probably have to get a mortgage to finance the purchase. I think someone knowledgeable in real estate matters should be consulted for advice/guidance before proceeding.

The Annual Fund drive letter, which drops on September 1, contains a line item for the Pavilion.  If we go over the goal (which is half of last year's goal) then we plan to further advance the projects in the letter.  So give early and often!

 My letter arrived today 31 August

Is there a plan for those of us who cannot attend because of COVID restrictions and/or travel distance?

I would think there are a set of plans for the car. If so perhaps a copy could be made and provided for modeling. Some On30 manufacturer might even be interested in producing a model kit with part of sale price going to the museum. Just a thought.

Is there a plan to build an interior wall between the bump out and the rolling stock storage area? If so it would provide additional wall space for displays. Of course there would need to be doorways between the two areas.

Does anyone make HOn30 locomotives? I've see HO scale SR&RL rolling stock kits but have not seen locomotives.

Glad to hear the news that Hot Spot Diner (Ships) is open. I got concerned when I came up for the Grand Reunion. As I passed by Ships around 8AM I didn't see any cars or lights on in the building so thought that Ships might have been sold and closed. Breakfast at Ships has been one of the highlights of coming to the Museum.

Will the station remain named Prebles or renamed Top of the Mountain?

I guess Alan D. isn't in his right mind.

Well said Gordon! I look forward to being part of the February "Grand Reunion".

I think the Walker Transportation Collection has a picture of SR&RL #6 (WW&F #9) at the Portland Co. plant. I also think I have a copy of that somewhere on my computer. Of course finding it is another story.

Kevin - Thanks for posting the links to your pictures!
