Help Mighty Mo Get Across Bride 8

bridge 8 repairCalling all volunteers! Assistance is needed on Friday, June 19, Saturday, June 20, and Sunday, June 21 starting at 9AM each day.

Bridge 8, our gateway to the west, has come up for concrete work necessary to allow locomotives and cars across it. Once the work is complete, we’ll be able to expand our ride even further.

Some of the tasks that we’ll need help with are building a form and pouring the concrete. We have plenty of power tools on hand and the materials are being delivered this week. No experience is necessary and we are always happy to train.

Come be apart of making history on the Stewartstown Railroad as we reopen bridge 8 to locomotives and rail cars.
