I can help the braking situation, I know where I can acquire some used drag chutes from the USAF.  Good up to 250 knots!   ;D

Wish I could, but other obligations prevent me from assisting on this one.

If my memory is correct I believe the wheels on EBT equipment were either 26 or 28 inches.  The other issue would be axle spacing as the trucks I observed are probably 12-18 inches further apart.  Don't know how they would handle our tighter radius.

Certain items were already noticed.  I have left that discussion between Wayne and Jason.  Any further details will be made available when appropriate.

As the Moxie lover in the group, I did take my fair share of ribbing from the guys.  All in good fun and laughing while we worked.  I think my next trip out to Ohio will include a case of Moxie just for grins.

A good time was had by all.  The jokes and puns were flying and I haven't laughed so hard and often in a long time.  There were some other interesting discoveries made but I'll let Wayne and Jason hash out whether a second trip may be needed in the future.

Just a quick FYI that the combined PA, OH, NY team successfully dropped 5 sets of couplers in Mt. Union EBT yard.  Pictures and more details forthcoming from Wayne shortly but to note is went much more smoothly and quickly than we expected.

Joe,  the reason I suggested work weekdays is so "out of towners" like myself could come up and work without dodging trains.  Also, there are other experienced hands with trackwork that can lead teams.  Both Wayne and I have done more than our share during our careers although we're not as fast as we used to be.  At the least we can teach others how its done.
