Some more prep work for permits was done this morning before the snow at the bridge site, and along the ROW north of there.

Also, several trees along the grade from End of track North were marked for cutting. A couple days this winter should take care of most of it.

The rest of the floor timbers were installed today, and the angled outside braces were started. I think they got one done.

Wayne,
Do you now need to take up baking? Coupler shaped cookies?

Hi Kevin.
Newsletters are mailed to all active members unless the newsletters get returned due to an address change or some other reason to be undeliverable.

Usually it is a couple weeks or more after they show up online before they start showing up in mailboxes.

Jeff, we now need a permit for the bridge, permits for culvert work and an individual permit for the repair at the pinch point. We will then apply for a track construction permit for sections 1, 2 & 4. Section 3 will have it's track includes, as will sections 5 & 6.

I guess I should have sat next to Hannah. But I like being unseen...

It is with great pleasure I make the following announcement.

After months upon months of very tough and thorough research, meetings, and plan design (and changes), the Alna planning board accepted the permit as complete tonight. More discussion followed, and then the Alna Shoreland Zoning permit for reconstructing the railroad Including the bridge and retaining walls) was approved. The only stipulation being any design changes must be approved by the town before they are implemented.

Many thanks to Jason who has done the bulk of the application. He has had lots of help from several of us, but he just has an attention to detail and a mind numbing appreciation for rules and regs that no one else can even touch, that really made the permit complete.

So, done with one permit. Now for about 3 more..

I love that video. Awesome.

You see in Brendans 4th picture up from the bottom, Tim and I are working on the lateral cross braces. They will be just above the floor beams when installed.

I also learned a trick or 2 today. Working with someone like Tim can teach you a few things.
