Wednesday also:
* X-Over Switch repaired and installed at ToM. (Jay, Steve P, Dan, Jason)
* Inspection of the SS Platform; Solutions discussed. (Jason, Brendan)

The media event was filming for a segment within an upcoming show on Wiscasset area attractions by a Boston-based evening newsmagazine. Hosted by Dave B & Steve P., they interviewed several volunteers, including Paul (model T), Zack, Eric, and probably others. They took the train to ToM where they met SeaLyon Farm and rode Linda Verney's horsewagon to the lavender fields. More details will be released once we know when it will be aired.

Jay Barta made the actual repair of the stand in the shop.  Dan and Steve P removed the stand Tuesday for repair; Dan and I reinstalled it yesterday after repair.

Thanks
