The metal roof is part of the Faraday cage.

The roof will be just in time for all that cold and snow that Alain is predicting.

Very effective - no Faradays have been seen running around.

If you are going to SR&RL tomorrow, make sure you have your masks.  The Governor has mandated masks state wide starting today.  Indoors and outdoors regardless of social distancing.

The mask requirement is anywhere public and started the 4th. Unless you are on your own property. But using your head, staying socially distant, and frequent disinfecting hands will help too. She had to make a blanket order for the whole state, no matter the local population.

Al and Mikes statements above make good sense.

For some additional perspective on this the school I teach at in Dresden (next to Alna)has been doing remote learning for the past 2 weeks due to a COVID case within the school. Despite Dresden’s low population, people come from other places or work places where the virus is more prevalent.

Since we all travel from many places to get to the railway and don’t live in a generally isolated community, taking extra precautions makes sense so we don’t transmit the virus from one community to another.

 ,
 I fully agree with you Mike but when I see how things go out here I wonder if people still know how to use their head.

Super Saturday -  WW&F crews worked at 3 locations: Alna, Portland and Phillips. 

- Phillips - WW&F volunteers helped the SR&RL build track to the new car barn (watch for a separate report).
- Portland - WW&F volunteers helped Maine Narrow Gauge rebuild parts of their mainline (watch for a separate report).
- Alna - (1) The metal roof was installed on the new electric distribution building and the staging removed. Interior work included covering soffit openings with 1" stock. A period correct door and casing was repaired for use on the building.  (2) Shop: the 24" Prentice lathe was removed from it's location in bay 3, partially disassembled and loaded onto the trailer of a fellow who purchased it. (3) Boxcar 56 was moved from the parking lot and set on trucks on the run through track.  The work is in preparation for the car coming into the shop for restoration/rebuilding as the WW&F tool car.  (4) The railroad mag phone line received some repair up near Top of the Mountain.
