On Sunday, Jon and David headed over for another early morning.
Repeating what worked before, they got two hours of cutting done,
before meeting the Inspection Crew at Talbott Park. David learned
how to apply grease to the insides of the trolley rail. After
following the trolley back and setting-off, the guys rode the
first revenue run and chatted with the crew about future cutting.

A year ago, Jon visited the Seashore Trolley Museum and noted that
branches were touching or nearly touching in several places, potentially
damaging their finely restored equipment. This was certainly an issue
that Jon, and the Cotton Valley membership, has expertise in.
On Friday, Jon headed over for an early morning, getting several hours of cutting done before backing into the Biddeford Spur, and waiting for the inspection trolley to come out to the Talbott Park loop. Jon would then follow it back to the Vistor Center.
It's great to be able to leverage the Club's expertise and help out the short lines and heritage railroads in New England. (JWM)
|(4-5 July 2019) Jon and Clif could almost be called the "Minute Men of Weed Whackers". Juggling schedules at the last minute, and over the holiday, they were able to help clear around signal cabinets and a customer siding in Concord. Clif's photo shows the forrest tunnel! (JWM)|
|(30 June 2019) On Sunday Jesse, Chris and Pete patrolled New England Southern on a shakedown run before the NEREX Vermont run. Other than stopping for a black bear it was an uneventful and safe run. (JM)|
