Thomaston Shop as it appeared in 2007
MAINTENANCE OF WAY
Work continues on trackage at the Shop Yard, with ballast being applied to Track 4. Following the passage of former hurricane Sandy through the region, a right of way inspection was done by Randy Patterson, Stewart Crouse and your editor. We covered the line from Hancock Brook in Waterville up through milepost 14 north of Campville and had only one tree that required a chain saw, and one that needed the pole saw. We were very fortunate! Equipment on the inspection trip included the tie (and tree!) handler and GMC TC35.

THOMASTON SHOP IMPROVEMENTS
After finding that our shop heating system had some problems, Howard Pincus began necessary repairs, working from a borrowed scissor lift or using some of our scaffolding. Most of the repair work has been completed. George Wittman and others have been assisting.
