It’s a Sherwin Williams color known as Rockwood Red or, as Mike and I call it, Rock Ridge Red. Knowing tha he brought a ( three rolls of) dimes to the board meeting may help you understand.

Not McGinnis B&M blue?  So sad!

Sorry.  The stain color choice is great and very appropriate!

Great news on all the progress today!  Glad to hear the improved tamper is working well.

Work done on Saturday June 9:

* Mountain Extension: Contractor delivered gravel yesterday evening so Mike graded, and put in another culvert.
* Percival House: Stairs are done.
* Track maintenance: Tamper is back in service.  I tried it out on the mainline by the station where we had leveled it last year but the tamper had died.  It works great.  It has a new improved squeeze function which really works well.  One flatcar has a load of stone for weekday crew, and the other flatcar is hoping somebody unloads the ties from it.
* Caboose 320: Marcel has been making wood pieces slightly smaller.  The wood he's using for the window/corner frames is largely Douglas Fir.
* Bridge: the bridge is now officially ours, it was turned over to us around noon.  At the board meeting we OK'd staining (don't say painting, Mike will correct you) it B&M red.
* Railcar: Leon and Stewart worked valiantly to fix the fuel issue, but with no success.
* Board meeting.

Cab, cupholder, heater? You don't get any of these. Matter of fact, there isn't even a seat on this thing! You have to walk behind it.

Around Alna a heater would also be appreciated at certain times of the year - like tonight!

None of the above. Watch the video.

A new main line tamper could cost half a million dollars. It would have an air-conditioned cab with a cup holder.
