And good luck. Driving nails into the oak will be something. There was talk of using a nail gun, which would be much easier getting those nails into oak.

Yep, the oak is tough.  Ok - forget what I said about bringing hammers.  Good news, Steve Z. will have his nail gun for the sheathing job ... it may be cheating but it'll get done faster.

After looking at the log book. There was 23 names lited for Saturday and 8 today.
Line side stumps removed from Sheepcott to half way down the Ladder. We broke one chain trying to remove a stump with # 52 in first gear. 52 uses 3rd gear 99% of the time. 4th gear was blocked out or removed for use in the steel mill.

Today the Car 65 crew installed most of the roof sheathing.  We left a small part open at the north end for the crane to set the coupler.  Tomorow we will start installing the freeze and shadow boards.  We'll start at the south end and work up both sides.  We need to get ladder rail measurements from car 312 at Boothbay to design car 65s side ladders and stirrups.

During the Winter work weekend minor work, such as valve lapping, was also done to #10, to help get her ready for the up coming season.
Track laborer, roadmaster, general laborer, and much more.
