I hope when you find the lids you take a GPS if you have one that will work that close,
but best is take measurements from fixed points and paint then inside the nearest door.

Bob Holmes: ..."Except the chain falls, but Block and Tackle would have worked as well."...

Just looked up Chain Falls - they go back over 100 years.

I have a Chain Fall from the 1920's - maybe not from the time of the original rail lay but not long after.
Mine is a Differential Hoist - it has 1 chain and 2 different sized pulleys on top.

This guy is a little long winded, so be prepared to skip ahead.

well extra pairs when burying the communication cable will accommodate
CCTV, though I have seen some sophisticated wireless units. (Successful Farming TV program)

Ya Fall is the best time to seed - but then you have to mow it.

The schedule 80 pipe was only for the wire laying machine.

Though schedule 80 PVC conduit would be a good idea from underground to junction boxes.
As good as metal (and does not rust) against string but not quite so good against saw blades.

These guys are Super Heroes because they are extra ordinary people that
are continually doing very extra ordinary things - in their spare time.

My tenant buries 6 & 8 inch drainage tile with a rig like Mike is proposing.
Some bigger with GPS positioning but essentially the same concept.

May I suggest schedule 80 pipe for the inserter, 40 would last with the right blade
but 80 is better.

Also lay 2 or 3 cables at the same time - I suppose if they are cut they all will
but maybe not.

The regular phone splices are red the water proof are blue as I recall.
slide a shrink tube over all first - dab in a little silicone before shrinking.
Telephone repair did 50 pair by our farm using squeeze locks, then covered the splice with a big
cover filled with silicone lube.

There is a butane soldering torch with needle flame or solder tip attachment.
Works good & don't need 120V.

Would getting the wire 2 feet off the ground help? Old PVC pipe for posts? Poly Pipe
where it needs burying?

Dog Fence cable layer would get the wire 2-3 inches down - but there may be too many rocks
in the ROW.

Have you guys seen the waterproof twist nuts?
Used direct bury on sprinkler systems - then (optional) a shrink tube over that.

Was that a thumbs up, or just wishing he had a Moxie in his hand?

Am I right in thinking the saw blade tips and not the table to make bevel cuts?

Thanks for the photo Brendan.
