Can we take and print the rules test online? Also, I must say the fence posts look great. Love the trail relocation efforts. Looks great to see a formal trail in place now.

So where do you find the operating crew section of the forum, It does not seem to appear on the home page

The Operating Crew section is a sub-forum under the Volunteers section. Like the 'members only' section, it is not visible to the general public - or those outside of the Operating Department.

That said, since you have started entry into the program, you have been added to that list and you should now see the Operating Crew section.

Are there "due dates" for the other tests?

Yes - anyone who attended a rules class in 2020 or 2021 should have all tests completed by the end of this year.

Today (Tuesday Aug 31) was busy.

* Shop Annex - Brendan was busy adding stuff in the annex, while Wayne and Kitty Laepple were sorting and organizing the bolt bins.
* Coach 9 - Some sanding was going on.
* Wood shop - that's the former machine shop.  Some old objects got removed and new objects got added.
* Passenger trucks - Jerry and Carlos and myself removed the top frame piece from two passenger trucks that were in a wreck at Edaville in the '70s.  The frames need to be bent straight.
* Loco 11 - Various people were doing stuff involving lathes, sparks, and heat.
* Trout Brook - the fence got put up.
* Mowing - Fred and Randy mowed.

Bryce and Dan led an effort to make a mounting bracket for the new injector for 9, and finished it!  We hope to install it next week if lucky.

Steve Leet led a crew of 4 and completed installation of the fence at Trout Brook. 

No 11 work party focused on preparing to flange boiler plate.  That work commences tomorrow on both 10 and 11 boiler plates.

Thanks all,
Jason

Which fence are you talking about. The fence on the bridge or the trail fence?

Sorry.. I meant the trail fence.  The bridge railing components were cut to length today.  We need a few more parts so that’ll get installed next week.

Thanks,
Jason

Will the walking trail within the drainage ditch, from what I can see in the photo, affect the drainage?  Will hikers get upset if they are walking in soggy ground? will there be additional grading or trail construction to prevent a feeling of being walled in between the fence and the hillside?

Just random thoughts from an occasional day hiker.

The re-routed trail's location was selected primarily by Midcoast Conservancy with our input and suggestions. Several joint work days have brought us this far.

If any of those items become a concern, the trail could (potentially) be routed up the hillside. However, that would not provide direct access to the bridge site, making a hiker's jaunt atop the tracks (as opposed to alongside them) more likely.

I thought the phone line was buried on the East side of the track in this stretch. Mike?
