Stewart got some pictures of us setting the track panels in the roundhouse yesterday.

 Will the run through track have a landscape wall added in the future?   Fred Kuhns

I remember doing the same work for both the concrete floor in bays 2 & 3 in the shop building, and the extension of the car barn.  It's not as simple as it looks.  Bravo Brendan

I gave Brendan a hand for a little bit straightening and leveling the track in stall 3 until Fred pulled me away. I came back and he had finished leveling and was installing the wood for the flangeways.

When I first saw the article on my newsfeed, I clicked on it because I thought somebody's house in Wiscasset burned but was getting rebuilt in Alna, which I thought was really curious.  The next thought was maybe a town line change, which I thought unlikely.  I was pleasantly surprised to see we were featured.

On the newspaper page about WW&F, on lower right corner is another newspaper ilink. The old Miss Wascasset Diner will be reopening for breakfast and lunch.

Really excited to see Miss Wiscacasset reopen, no matter the name.  I loved the previous owner family's southern take on the menu (their family was from Mississippi -- grits, chicken fried steak, etc).

We went there often over the last 5-6 years, and really missed it when it closed.  We'll be going back for sure.

A nicely written article. Wasn't the water tank a replica of the Head Tide tank?

The concrete contractors have been back and prepped for the floor. Hopefully we'll have a floor this week sometime.

Brendan above said some time this week. Cement contractor did not  pour last week because of the high heat wave.

I remember being docked at Bath at the Maritime Museum and it was 104! Hiding under the gangway for shade. I remember saying this it the hottest I have ever felt. Still nothing here in Florida gets close to that week in Maine. It dropped in temperature the week after but man!
