Grand Opening of the Mountain Extension photo albums - Part 1 and 2 have been posted on the railway's Facebook page.  Thanks to everyone who made the day such a great event, the success shows in the pictures. 

The opening excursion and the celebration at Alna Center went very well but I think the reunion of so many friends was almost as good.

John check in with Connor Maher. He was front and center for the smashing of the bottle, so you might get something out of him.

It is so nice to have a First Selectman who "gets it" - it was a real pleasure to hear what Ed Pentaleri had to say.

Just wanted to circle back with you to offer another congratulations for a very, very successful event yesterday.  Thank you very, very much for inviting me to participate on behalf of the Town of Alna.  The WW&F is an absolute treasure in the community, and this was a really remarkable milestone for the organization and the town.

Best,
-Ed Pentaleri
1st Selectman, Town of Alna

John I'm glad you're going to start bringing cases with you. The 7 cases that I brought up in April (temporarily) killed my Jeep and I'm not keen to relive the experience anytime soon.

Work and Events / Re: Hydration during hot weather, both crew and passengers

(raises hand) I can attest to all of the above. Last October, during the Fall Work Weekend, I had a bout with dehydration while working with the flanging machine. I felt a bit woozy and sat down, but not quite soon enough, and I fainted for a few moments. I drank some water when I came to, but in the meantime, a 911 call had taken place, and I got to ride the an ambulance to Miles Hospital in Damariscotta and stay overnight while my condition was observed and evaluated. Since, then, I am very cognizant of the need for regular water breaks, and this past week, while working on No. 11's frames, two bottles of water were always close at hand. While everyone at Miles Hospital was great, I'd rather not make another visit!

I would like to add on to Bills post that on the Track crews tools list for every Tuesday and Wednesday we carry a cooler of ice and water for all hands. It's a crew chief/foreman's job to look out for everyone who is working under him/her. This is one of those "Risk Management" topics one must consider to help keep everyone safe.

To those that thought of this, it was a great idea. And some of the crew consistently went through the train asking if anyone needed water. It was very hot in the cars with limited air movement. The longer the train sat, the hotter it got..
