Naugy Spring Track Blitz Approaches!

Our second annual Spring Track Weekend will be held on the 18 and 19th of April. This year’s work will be on the main line and will include tie replacement and surfacing near the Jericho Bridge south of the shop site Other projects will also be running concurrently, such as “spring cleaning” on the Thomaston Station grounds. Work will begin 9:00am each day, and lunch will be served to those who reserved. Proper safety gear, including a hard hat, safety glasses, gloves and safety-toe boots will be mandatory for all on-track workers.

Please register with project leaders Chad Boutet or Steve Butterworth at least one week prior to the event to allow planning and food purchases to be made. This project will be a great opportunity to introduce new volunteers to railroad work. If you know anyone who has had some interest, bring them along for a nice day of exercise and education!

If you’ve never had the chance to go out and work on a real railroad, be careful! The “railroad bug” has bitten many of us and we’re hooked ever since…
