Good stuff Hansel.  Next steam is Fathers Day weekend, June 15th and 16th. After a solid week of rain (8") we hope the sun will be out!

Thanks Hansel. Good to see the work we put into the water bar at the crossing worked as planned. I wanted to inspect it but forgot.

This morning, Dwighy and I cleared limbs and slash from our walking trail at Head Tide, then we went North with 52 with another person and did the same from Albee's crossing back to ALNA CEnter station and we picked up stuff in the woods behind the station and put it on the pile that has to be burned.

Also -

More work on #9 by Alan D. and some organizing of spare shop metal.  Sunday and Monday we toured visitors including people from CA and OR.  Monday afternoon four of us ran an inspection trip to EoT and then hiked down past the big wash out.  So nice to see sunshine!

What is equally as interesting is that I see someone has organized the wrenches again.

Two important delivery's for the museum today -

One is 25 tons of coal in the "new" coal pocket. 

The other delivery weighs a bit less and may be announced by another party ...

Great Day in the morning!

May is done, but I just wanted to say thank you to everyone who my father and I met and worked with at the museum while we were there. It was really a great time working with, touring the lines, and getting to know everybody. While I don't think I'd ever been this worn out after a vacation- I wouldn't trade it for anything! I'm not sure when the next time I will be able to make it back up to Maine will be, but I'll be looking forward to it, and working on patterns for #11 till then.
Thanks again,
Alan

Alan, it was a pleasure to meet you and your father. You guys found a project and tackled it. I'm glad that the narrow gauge bug bit you when you were up before. It is volunteers like yourself that make the museum what it is. Hope to see you when you make your next visit.
