For all of you getting ready for the Christmas trains, the final tally here in Woolwich is 9" of white powder.  Well, last night at 1700 was 8.5, and about 3" over night, which supriseingly enough gave a total of 8" in the morning, and with the snow all day a final setteled total of 9".  Hopefully it will stick around.

Well, according to the old Farmers Almanac, this was expected. the dates of the 12th - 15th have a significant snow storm, with accumulations expected as far south as Virginia. So not only will we have a white Christmas, we will also have a white Victorian Christmas.

Has anybody created a broadside to advertise the Victorian Christmas? I was looking for something to put up at work. I was going to create one if not. Can someone provide a list of things going on that I could put onto it.

There is a flyer floating around. Maybe someone could send you a pdf to print off yourself.

Thanks,
If someone could do that, it would be great.

A word of caution: The flyer presently floating around says that the trains run  until 6 pm. It will probably be more like 4 pm, as that is when the horses go home and also when Santa is likely to conclude his visit.

John,  Will there be Christmas light displays out on the line as in past years?  In the past we run a few trains after dark for visitors to see the displays at Humason Brook and Alna Center.  Are Fred and Bob C. setting up lights again this year?

Yesterday Bob C. and Dave O. decorated the station at Sheepscot. Nothing has been done North yet.

If we indeed do get out at 5ish, last year a bunch of us went to Sarah's for food and stuff, any one interested this year?
I think most of us had fun last year.....
