No, actually more room. The posts and everything attached to them took up quite a bit of room

Jeff, you can not believe the amount of room in there now. Once the Jenga piles are out of the way, I am sure someone will take a picture.

Bringing in a compactor this week, and Saturdays picture should be much different. To complete the permitted portion of this, all that needs to be done is back fill 1 foot above the pipe. I can borrow enough from the grade to accomplish that. We can then back fill when we want.

Thank you. Much easier to see the reply button


The crew this morning, muddy feet and tar covered hands, gloves and clothes. Gerry and Carlos standing on the crane, Alan and Steve Z. in front of it, Steve P. is on the pipe, Mark is in the mud next to the pipe and Harold to the right. We were done before the first train.

Is there a way to remove the like button? That prompts you to log into facebook, which some of our members don't use.

I am hoping for shine but reality will be clouds with a chance of showers. Rain coats a possibility.,

Great progress.

Rain this morning prevented setting the last culvert section, but we did hook it to the crane and set it on the ground, freeing up the flats. Saturday I will finish the prep and we can set that in place. No pictures were taken due to the rain.

Putting out the last call for help for first thing in the morning. I need to get the last pipe in. After tomorrow, I have 7 Saturdays left so this is crucial. 8 AM preferred departure. If I have enough before, we will leave then.

That would be excellent.

National Weather Service currently has a 40% chance for showers Saturday. I am still in hopes to set the pipe in place, but the forecast will determine that. If it rains at all Friday evening, we will not place the pipe. The good old Alna clay will be too slippery to be safely walked on. I do still have just a little prep left to do.

Looked like you had more than one

And I slept like a baby last night. Ashamed to say, I never opened my eyes until 8 this morning...

I am hoping to set the second pipe first thing Saturday Morning. I would like a crew to leave the station by 8. Loading and setting the culvert should be done by the first trains arrival at TOM. We will then be done for the day to partake in the rest of the days activities.
