Special Event! Our Annual Spring Work Weekend!
April 28 @ 7:00 AM - April 30 @ 5:00 PM
Each year since 1997, volunteers from around the country and overseas travel to the Museum in late April and over the Columbus Day weekend to help work on numerous projects at the Museum. Planned projects this spring will likely include:
• Make the Top of Mountain extension serviceable for work movements, so work trains can reach the first culvert that needs replacement • Main line track maintenance • Coach #8 baggage door project • Sheepscot station platform repairs • Humason trestle retaining wall • Top of Mountain mill siding • Start of the spur into the Maine Locomotive and Machine Works at Sheepscot Mills • And most likely other work as well to prepare our railroad for the coming summer season! •
Our project list may change as we get closer to the spring work weekend.
Of course, visitors are welcome to just watch & see how our railroad is maintained and grows!
Work will start at 7 a.m. and end around 5 p.m. (or a bit earlier Sunday). Delicious lunches and dinners will be provided to volunteers by the Museum.
