I'm looking for info on the flags used by the railway.
What are the dimensions and what size staff are they on.

NEWS VIEWS this Thursday features updates on some of our smaller projects as well as photos of the school field trip we hosted last week.  Have a look to see what we asked the kids to say instead of "cheese" when we took their picture.

That car of ballast could then be used on that new filter fabric. 

The tamper is in service.  Could run to Albees field and start fixing that mess, then deliver tamper to mill spur for that job. 

I’d suggest the filter fabric and stone over the Fossil washout as a priority, due to erosion concerns.

Saturday morning I would like to install some filter fabric under the new track at the washout. We are going to start using it under all new track, as both sediment control and hopefully weed control. As we continue North, we need to do everything we can to stop existing erosion, fix the erosion, and keep from eroding again.

So just an extra hand or 2 would be all I need, and we will finish in no time

Definitely ballast & tamping. When I was there first week in Oct. I noticed a stock rail unsupported for a distance of about six feet. The gaps between the base and the top of the ties were small but large enough I could swing a chipped piece of tie between them freely.

I had thought of a simple deflector that hung on the stake pockets, but never got any further than the design in my head. Very simple.

Russ, Albion is an interesting place to visit for both the existing station and the remnants of what once was.
