Hi all, your friendly webmaster would like some pictures and information for the website.  Please post here for all to see, and for me to download at my leisure.

First, I'd like pictures of the 4-wheel wooden workflats that were used in the "early days" of the railroad for ballasting.  These workflats were about 6 or 7 feet long, and were all wood except for the axles and wheels.

Secondly, Bruce I think you've sent this to me a couple of times, but I'd like construction/purchaser information on the Brookville (#51).

I'd also welcome a picture of the wooden four-wheel flat built by Russ St. John in 2000.

Lastly, a picture of the fire-fighting work flat.

Thanks all

James. I have the picture of the fire car. I'll look for it and post it for you right here.

When was the handcar built?  Was it 2007 or 2006?  I need a picture of that too.

Here is the Handcar. I believe it was completed on 2006. Johnathan St. Mary made those covers for the equipment and we used it over the winter last year ('06-'07).

I really like the light in that picture, Mike -- very nice!

Stephen, It's called "sunrise". Something I just noticed about the photo. Look at the end of the boxcar. The shadows are making a resemblance of a man. Ghost perhaps, standing on the handcar?
The only thing that spoiled that shot was the presence of the "Maine Roof" Dana put over the boxcar.

oh, so that's what that is!  That must be why it appeared so foreign to me...
