Second that.

Did not realize you guys planned a good-sized, total track and roadbed rebuild at that spot.  Much too big a job for one lonely tie inserter.   :P
But...its day will come.  ;)

Davis Grade's coming  work will see lots of tie replacement. But the new inserter won't be used ??

67 looks terrif as is. Just don't ever "wrap" it in huge ads like Abq buses.
Awful.  :'(

Bet that tie inserter will save LOTS of drudgery out on the line, especially with more track coming.  ;)
Ya gotta run a demo video!

Outstanding work, Zack.
BTW, those end wall standoff steps make dandy vertical handles on big, heavy rolling doors.  :D

Uncoupling, or cut levers have vertical grab handle ends, need to be mounted on a car end bottom so they can rotate and have their opposite right angle ends pull this type coupler's lock pin straight up from the top.
Newer couplers push their locking brackets up from underneath, are not affected by weather as much.
I've yanked a few on the ATSF.

Really enjoy seeing fine craftmanship  used to scratch-build  elements, tools to rebuild an historic, useful machine like No. Ten.

Astounding amount of organized Clearing and Grubbing!
Better slow down or you'll run out of trees!  ;D
Very well done.

Superb work day! 
Is this the biggest non-tracklaying turnout yet?
Bravo to all who sawed, burned and stacked.

Love the shot of 9 dragging the downed tree off the track between TOM and the first washout.

Didn't realize there has to be such minimized site disturbance. Also, your time constraint is so tight. Wow.
Go for it.

John...good one!
Great pics. I see fine evidence of progress--less woods, more stumps.
Given da weather, you guys should be either sainted by the Pope, or knighted by the Queen...maybe both!
What' s really great is that  Trout Brook Bridge Project Sitework HAS STARTED!!
In construction-speak, it's called Clearing and Grubbing.

Beside swappable plows, Cumbres and Toltec 2-8-2 locos have oem flange chisels mounted on their pilot trucks, activated by their freight car-size  air cylinders; ran year-round over 10015-foot Cumbres Pass  through frozen, DEEP snow!
These days, only short distance Christmas trains run from 8000-foot, end-towns Chama and Antonito, flangers not used nor needed.

This pic is a gem, has a 'Grandma Moses' look to it, deserves further publicity.  ;)
