Yes, the kitchen crew and all support staff always deserve high praise. Without them, Fred would have to cook a lot of Hot Dogs..

I used the bucket to lift up one end of the machine at a time. I got one set of wheels on the truck, then spun around and raised the other set of wheels up to get on the truck.

I arrived early, and had the truck running before daylight. Wanted to get right up there and get the last grading done before the rails started flying.

First thing I did was use the boulder as a ramp to load the Kubota. No pictures of the loading because I was too busy hanging on to get off and snap a shot.





Then I spent about half an hour finishing dozing, leveling the low spot. Then I lugged a bale of hay to South of the bridge to cover over the material I placed last weekend.

Dropped the Kubota at Alna Center before lunch, using the piles of ballast as the ramp.



Back north in the afternoon to check on progress and visit. Steady climb from the bridge.

That size of an engine is, I think, far too large for our needs, or the needs of any of the Maine 2 footers.

You saw the price tag, didn't you Mr. Treasurer...😀

Ed and Jason have put a lot of thought into making the weekend work out for both the FWW and the Pumpkin Trains. Not an easy task to accomplish. My hat is off to them.
