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

Funny you should mention that - Saturday we were thinking once the Mountain Extension is complete we paint it some bright neon color, park it at the end of the track by 218, with a "Visit the WW&F Railway Museum!" message on it.

...with a photo of Fred smiling and waving.

I like the Fred waving Picture Idea.

Why go with a picture? Take one of Fred's chairs from TOM and set it down by 218. Provide Fred with a small table and some lemonade. ;D

I forgot to add - and a big umbrella, in case it's raining or too hot. :o

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

I have a feeling it will get a good workout during Spring Work Weekend.

I went fishing for Moose Trout today. I didn't get a bite, so guessing they don't like size 13 LL Bean boots attached to a leg dangling through the ice. Luckily the boots are waterproof, and the toes stayed dry.

No danger of being bitten by a moose trout, Mike. They are hibernating this time of year. :o

That looks like a good size tree laying across the ROW in the last photo.

It's going to be a very busy year ahead. Will need lots of volunteers to get it all done.

I'll be there for SWW, Fred.

A couple of pictures from today:

Mike twitching with the dozer.  Fred's taking a brief break - but he wanted Jeff to know that he was chain sawing (limbing, mostly).


Looking toward the bridge site, with a few trees missing.


Glad to hear that Fred had a chainsaw in his hands. I was starting to think he'd given that up.
