I am pleased to see that Joseph is working with Johnathan. Johnathan has a wealth of knowledge and is willing to pass that along. Joseph has the energy and motivation to be a part of our RR community. I foresee a continued good future in young Joseph and for our Museum

There will not be any coach 9 work this week. Eric and I are off on a road trip. The main event is the Cabin Fever model engineering expo in Lebanon, PA, but since we are going in that direction we have rented a U-Haul truck and will be hauling to Cat tail foundry some patterns for the Engine 11 project, and bringing back some finished castings, among them parts for the vacuum brakes.

As discussed, Eric and Ron went on an adventure to get castings for vacuum brakes, coach 9, and locomotive 11. See photos.

Looking like Saturday may be a little damp in the morning, but if we have a willing crew, I would like to go out again. This time trimming the few limbs left along the stretch we did last weekend, and cutting either toward Sheepscot from Brook Crossing or continuing north through Cockeye Curve to Maine Locomotive & Machine.

I can see journal boxes for the J&S passenger car trucks (maybe?), but what are all the other neat castings?

We've been referring to the "half watermelons" as salad bowls.

Alna - as of 9:00am this morning the temp is 30 with sleet and ZR. Many roads in the mid-coast region are coated in black ice with local law and fire reporting a number of accidents. Road crews are responding but Lincoln County EMA suggests that everyone stay home until things get better (hopefully) this afternoon.

Hi Jeff, 
ZR is an abbreviation for freezing rain, it's used in weather alerts that are sent to fire personnel when storms are in the forecast.
