How much did you get Ed?

Son in Concord NH said he got 30 inches.

Should have known you had a plan. Just thought parallel would make cheap/inexpensive cover.
Non-period stuff out of sight is good too.

Paint it Camouflage? As Mike says "boxcar" or how about "Freight Shed"

Young MN sailor sailing Solo Around the World may have hit a container few years back.
No trace ever found.

Not going to put new container parallel to old so with only a roof there will be 3 covered storage areas?
2 will be secure but the other will be at least covered or could be 3 walled.
10 or 12 feet wide?

A B&W photo of a side view would be Fine Art.
Fine Art of Fine Art?

Thought you might like this guy's work:

His FB page:

He might be able to build a Switch Lamp from scratch? Or would you do that John?

Just an idea.

Happy Thanksgiving All

I assume :-) that the tag will be soldered on so any alteration can be reversed.
Alleviating concerns.

I disagree

It is written Wilmar but it is called Wilma.

Now how do you spell the wind? Mariar? ;D

I know time is in short supply - but please map exactly where the conduit is located.

I know from experience both tile lines and electrical do not always go where you might think.
A map will help 20, 30 or more years down the line.

And Locaters can be off 5 feet and more which creates real headaches.

I have had good luck with the metal blade with chainsaw teeth - especially with the woody grasses and
weeds - burdock, thistle, lambs quarter. (Of course not against rock or fences) and easier to sharpen.
A customer of mine preferred the 80 tooth on saplings and Sumac.

Your results may vary.

Shouldn't that be #12?

Don't change gauge just add 3rd rail and pocket, then use it as a pusher.  ;D

Rather than cogs use cable gripers like SF Cable Cars -- Mike should be able to do that in a couple of Hrs.

Time warp or "Twilight Zone" Alain

This may be one man to contact about lamp repair and/or reproduction.

"The Luminary Shoppe"

Knowing the talent at the Museum probably not necessarily. :-)

I don't mind work - in fact I like work --- I can sit and watch it all day.

The only problem maybe that what Mike is doing will be more interesting to some riders
than what is going on at the Station.
