Plow 68 work. These photos and story are from Cam Sargent.

Another successful day of repairing/restoring equipment at the Bartlett Roundhouse today! After a rainy start, Pete Davis, Bob Marshall, and I began removing more of the old sheathing boards from the woods side of Portland Terminal snowplow #68. By lunchtime, the weather turned in our favor, and we finished installing the new sheathing boards, and Bob caulked the seams. The next step will be to ad the quarter-rounds to the edges and finish caulking them. Then a primer coat, and a green paint coat.

The work session dates for the 2018 season are as follows:  May 26/27, June 9/10, July (most of us are wrapped up with Thomas, so we'll have to see if we need to schedule a date during that month if there is a need), August 5, September 8/9, October 20/21, and a tentative date for November 4 (mostly to winterize the property, remove any paint and other items that need to be stored from freezing).  These dates are arranged so that if there is bad weather on one day of the weekend, the other day may be scheduled for the session.  Generally, the work sessions will not take up an entire weekend unless there is a great need during a project.  This allows for some flexibility for most folks, and if someone is interested in participating in a work session, please let us know in advance so that the sessions can be planned to provide enough activities for those attending.  As a particular work session date approaches, I will have a notice posted on the blog as to what our planned activities will be and if it will be held on  Saturday or Sunday of that weekend.  I invite any questions, concerns, and comments and look forward to seeing everyone soon.
