Tank report. Everything that needed to come off the tank is removed. Most of the external needle scaling was finished this weekend. Holes were drilled through the tank sheets to check for sheet thickness in suspect areas, the worst spots still have plenty of sheet thickness. The holes will be welded back up later. You can see from James picture we cut an access hole into the top of the tank to clean the inside out. We cleaned the side of the tank by the access hole out and then took out the internal braces to reach the other side. There is still 4 small braces up in the water legs to come out and then a couple areas need to be needle scaled before sandblasting. One 5 gallon pail of rust and mouse nest was removed.

Tank braces installed.

Without cross braces

Stewart couldn't have been a Yeti there's no tracks leaving.

The trailer is a little buried. Excuse my thumb.

Merrimack NH I have about three feet of snow in front of my car, some people have nothing around their cars and some cars are buried.

We'll be hanging off the other side of the rt 1 bridge picking up the dairy car. The pete would probably be faster than yeti. Maybe we can get a good trade in value.

You will have to wait for the winter work weekend to see the trailer and ground throws.

Here you are Mike. I have to flip the pintle ring on the trailer so the trailer will sit level.

A couple underneath shots, pretty clean for a New England trailer.

Woke up the Yeti from winter hibernation and picked up the trailer today. The next stop is down to Copeland Lumber in Marshfield MA next weekend to get loaded up with the new ground throws from MD and up to Maine the following weekend.

The hauling and rigging department took a ride to Baltimore MD late last night to drop off some rail at the Baltimore Streetcar Museum. The rail will be machined into switch points and frogs for the new yard tracks by Dave Crow and company. Had a quick tour of the machine shop dumped the rail but Dave wouldn't let me leave empty and gave me a load of ground throws destined for Alna ME. This update posted from the lovely New Jersey Turnpike.

Dave unloading rail. Tried to take the backhoe back but Dave wouldn't let me.

Ground throws loaded

Another view the background sign is appropriate after chaining down 18 ground throws.

That video has been floating around on youtube. I think it is a railroad line in South Carolina that a museum is working on restoring.

The trailer has an almost new hemlock deck on it so pulling some planks shouldn't be hard. I was thinking get some c channel and notch the channel to fit over the trailer cross members. That way the "rails" are flush with the deck. Mike have a little faith in the Yeti as long we don't want to get up to highway speed we can haul number ten around fine. We could put 9 on the trailer and not be any worse off than when it got trucked from the Kennebec Central.
