 Brendan, thanks for all the pictures, Stewart, your written review of all the work, and Fred, the information on additional work to complete the Car Barn. Thanks to all the volunteers on the truss crew for a task completed safely. I hope the BOD would look at adding insulation under the metal roof, cost for the material and possible longer metal screws.  Again thanks

 Stewart,  The pictures of the last few weeks show great progress on the engine, along with track work, restroom and garage painting, car barn walls being made ready for the roof trusses, and the shingle mill being moved to the museum.  The Facebook team is doing a great job of spreading the word on the museum.  I always look forward to Thursdays and the weekly report.  Fred L.

 Stewart, On the Facebook some days ago there was a picture of a water tank building and section house (model). Was the models of the WW&F railroad buildings? If so, I was thinking the section house might be built as crafts center for Alma.  The large window in the gable would let in a great deal of natural light. The size could be on the order of 12' x 16' or 12' x 20'. The DOD would have to determine whether this is something that would fit into the museum greater plan. Thanks again, for the great work of the FB gang ,love all the pictures and information provided.  Fred L. Kuhns

Jason, The BOD are very fortunate to have Brendan and Dean to help in providing the timber for such a outstanding structure. The appearance of the Car Barn will look more like it would have in the 1920's and 1930's. The BOD idea to build permanent was a very wise decision.  Fred L. Kuhns

   Mike, It is great to know that the water problem is history. The last of the footings for both the east and west walls are in place. The timbers are going up and looking forward to the roof trusses.  Thank again for progress reports.    Fred L. Kuhns

 Brendan, Looking forward to see how the timbers go together to build the walls. The sawmill had some good trees to turn into timbers.  Fred L. Kuhns
