Just a few shots today..



Did not have my phone with me most of the morning, so I did not show the build up. James was happy when he got the water to flow through. A little more work to do, but ready for track.





I had to leave so I just tossed the ties back on the grade. Some are upside down, and none are spaced out. Most are good, but there may be one or 2 that need replacing.

Doing way too much to list...

The man doors were also put in Saturday.

The big doors need material to make the hinges, which Brendan will do tomorrow.  I guess they'll be hung during the week.

Excellento!
Always concerned about security.

Per finding the WW&F  phone line during repairs/construction...
How about laying the line a standard distance from the nearest track rail, and/or pounding in short, plain lath pieces every 50 feet or so to not attract woods vandals?

I did a less-than-thorough but still intent look to see if i could find the phone line east of the new culvert, but could not see it - it was not obviously on top of the ground.  I did not try to find it south of the area and trace back, either.

Did you carry an operating metal-blade weed whacker? They are almost as good finding the wire as using bare feet to find something at home.

I blew out my flip flop
Stepped on a pop top
Cut my heel, had to cruise on back home
