Mighty fine looking Bill. Can't wait to see them Saturday.

I have yet to complete this, but May 1 is coming up. That is the requested delivery date for the 4- 4 foot culverts that are on order. I need to build an elevated staging area next to the rail pile in the parking lot. Probably above the crane turntable pieces to save space. This will be temporary storage for the culverts that are coming in. This will allow rolling the pipe off the trailer and not having to lift it.

James forgot to mention work continued on the equipment car today. Jason wanted a way to address potential side thrust, and between he and I texting back and forth Friday, this was the result. The last thing I need to do is finish the tow point. I started today, but did not finish. Then when the trailer is flipped back over, I have more welding to do, frame to cross members and the plates I couldn't get today.

And Paint. Stewart and I talked paint for a second today, and I think I like his idea of black, atleast for the new frame, and the trailer School Bus Yellow.

1014 is still not ready. Painting, but not able to devote enough time to complete it this week. Should finish it early next week, if all goes well. Worked on it every night this week, but am marking off tonight so I can do my membership duties...

Bill,
When you drop the doors for coach 8, you can stop in the Portland area and get some rough Mahogany. I forget the name of the company, but have heard the commercial on the radio several times. "The wood of the world is available at"...

Back at it again. I think the cold is finally out of here. Both outside and the one in my head.

The SR&RL combine at Boothbay that Ted is speaking of is the old F&M combine under the shelter.

Yes, those holes are for the pipes the lifting arms slide in. The pipes are in now. Felt good enough Monday night to tackle that. I have some grinding I want to do before I put the deck on. The bars I am using will be some left over truss rod from the 67 project. Hoping these are solid enough so when loading rail they will not bend.

ROWMOW Mfg has been down with the crud this week, so there may be a delay in the arrival of 1014. Still a little work to do to it, then paint, but the crew is out until they feel better.

The crate idea gives opportunity for a hand injury. That was designed to keep luggage and parcels out of the travel way of the door. For the safety of our patrons and our volunteers, either leave the door exposed or make it open in a pocket.

An iron gate would be nice, especially if it looked the part. Problem would be what to do with the gate while not in use, and how heavy would it be to handle if it was removable.

As far as seating, there was talk of making the bench to the left of the door removable. This will enable us to have capacity when needed, and the flexibility to handle our mobility challenged guests at almost the drop of a hat. Time for that modification was running short.

John,
It will slide toward the end of the car. The original car (4) had that window blanked out.

Thank you Bill for spearheading this grant. I think there is a very good grant team in place now.

Congratulations to all involved.
