All the Jenga tie stacks were removed from the shop today.  Fred hauled the ties over by the run through track.  Some of the larger rocks were removed as well.  We still need to cut and pull the last sub-sill that's under the old lathe pad in bay 2.

Work done Sunday, August 20th -

* Shop building - All the ties that were used for bracing up the second floor were removed from the building and piled by the run through track.

* Turntable - Switch locks were installed and the chains secured for the bolt latches on both ends of the bridge.  This allows for the table to be lined for various tracks without "loosing" the lock at the other end of the bridge or on the end of the wrong feeder track.

* Charters - 320 was rented for a birthday party which helped boost our ticket and gift shop sales higher than Saturday.

* Chow - Nancy Weeks made a nice cookout style lunch, thank you Nancy!

A good house-cleaning always gives you more room.  Museum folks are pack-rats as we never know when we'll ever need or use a part or piece of machinery again.  Occupational hazard................. ;)

No, actually more room. The posts and everything attached to them took up quite a bit of room

It's not that there is any more room, it's just that there is more usable space with the support columns missing.

Jeff, you can not believe the amount of room in there now. Once the Jenga piles are out of the way, I am sure someone will take a picture.
