Work and Events / Coach 8 Seating
« on: February 24, 2019, 11:31:43 AM »
Not sure this is the correct place to post this observation and question. On both Feb 16 and 17, as a brakeman, I noticed that at all stops, as passengers boarded Coach 3 was always the first to fill up. I just wonder if that is because of the seats it has. Thus I wonder if any consideration has been given to installing seats like those in Coach 3 in Coach 8.

Volunteers / What to wear while on train crew/period clothing

Just watched Hansels' video of Fall Festival and was VERY PLEASED to see that the Americian Flags that I made were used on #10 as well as seeing JB atired like a conductor. Maybe JB's atire isn't authentic to WW&F but I'm sure is very close to the image of a train conductor that our visitors have.

Work and Events / November 3 Breakman Training
« on: November 05, 2012, 09:15:51 AM »
As one of trainees I would like to acknowledge the obvious work and thought James and Jason put into structuring and conducting the "class". I feel the topics were well organized and presented by James and Jason. The limited Class size and spliting us into two smaller groups for part of the training along with doing what was taught I think were key factors in the success of the training. There was a lot of information provided during the class and I know it will take sometime at least for me to absorb it all or at least most of it.

Work and Events / Rail Display At Alna Center

Stewart: A suggestion to add to the project list. There is a piece of original rail in the grass at Alna Center. Being a museum I think it needs to be a display. Thus my suggestion is to build a couple of simple posts with brackets to hold the piece of rail about 2 1/2 to 3 ft off the ground and then have some kind of plaque or sign on it that describes what it is and include a few facts about it. Another thought is to also put the piece of rail found at Top ofthe Hill with it and maybe just for comparison a short section representative of the mainline rail we are now using. I would think the posts and brackets can be pressure treated wood. Making a sign is the hard part. Maybe there is a sign shop in the area that would make it up and they'd be allowed to put their business info along the bottom of the sign so they get some advertising benefit. Just a thought.
