Actually, depends on how "busy" the facebookers page is. If I have a few friends post a bunch of stuff, I really have to search for the Museum post. You making the announcement here helps me find it.

If it gets buried on the news feed page, you can go right to the WW&F page.  Especially on Thursday night.

There are two new fb postings with photos of the Fall Festival.  One is by the train crew and the second is from the Alna Center crew.  The kid photos are super, everyone had a good (old fashioned) time!

Tonight's NEWS VIEWS show a number of things around Sheepscot including: the new power pole, Fall foliage, progress on #9's tank and using the bull riveter for switch frog assembly.

Tonight's post features a look at all the projects that got attention today including the car shed and upper yard.  About a dozen members worked all day to get things ready for the FWW. 

We look forward to seeing everyone over the next 4 days.

Check fb tonight for a photo essay on the Fall Work Weekend, days 1-3.  Much has been accomplished so far and it's hard to list every project but we have a nice collection of photos including views of #9, the car shed, the upper yard trackage, Whitefield section house and a shot of our new boxcar, B&SR #67.

Thanks for the information Philip.  The Fall Work Weekend post has gotten over 3,000 views in two days showing the level of interest in the work we are doing.

Tonight a special article was posted with old photos and additional information on B&SR car 67.  There's a surprise at the end too!

Tonight's broadcast highlights work done this week including 90' of new rail to get the woods track started.  There's a few Fall scenery shots thrown in to show that we don't just photograph trains.

Fabulous photo essay! Huge amount of work done.
That overtime, two-man woods track team should get hero medals!
Adding back doors to the car barn is a great idea, especially for access to planned restoration work in there.
Will ridge vent louvers be added to gable ends? That roof will generate lots of heat.
What color will the car barn be painted? Same as restrooms and MOW garage?
What's next...TOM north trackwork or turntable/roundhouse?

The BOD makes those decisions, but the building is purposed for storage, not restoration.

The car barn will free up much needed space in the car shop for restoration work, or new construction, or whatever.

This fall we may be able to dig the pit for the center of the turntable (depends on our excavation equipment health), and this winter the mid-week work focus will be on creating castings for the turntable.

Sorry. Somebody mentioned that restoration might be done in the car barn. The shop is the obvious place for it.
Cheers.
