Bonus Steam Train Snow Day!
« on: February 21, 2022, 10:57:20 PM »
We're running this Saturday!
Part of the itinerary includes a freight delivery to Maine Locomotive and Machine (specifically, a flatcar of parts from Sandy River's steam outline locomotive - needing a rebuilding.) We'll also do a runby at Alna Center - other locations upon request if conditions warrant.

Tickets are live at www.wwfry.org/winter.

To digress, you mentioned that parts from Sandy River's steam outline locomotive were being delivered to Maine Locomotive & Machine.  Since the locomotive is being repaired, the group should consider changing the driving wheels.  When #11's drive wheel center patterns get back from the foundry, one or both of them should be modified to accept crank pins.  They then could be used to cast much better-looking drive wheels for the locomotive.  I know that this would be costly, but it would greatly improve the aesthetics of the locomotive.

Good point Bernie, I would never have thought of that.
