As I think I have said before - Extend the passenger platform north. It does not have to be a full
locomotive length, just enough to clear the Fouling Point. That would simplify operations without having to
cross Cross Road. (in the near term)

Sitting here today thinking what am I thankful for. It is moments like this, 2 years ago.



To this this fall



And thinking about all the work in between the 2 locations. In just two years. We have done an incredible amount ourselves. Thankful for all the friends I have made and continue to make. Thankful to be part of one of the best organizations going.

I made a final trip down the Mountain today to retrieve Casey. Thinking ahead, I gassed up a saw and brought it with me in case there was a tree down. And just so happens, there was one by the Wall.



I fired up the saw and bang, the chain came off. No tools with me. Well crud I said. Thinking I could clear it, I nosed ahead to get the equipment car under the tree, then used a bar and limbed the tree. 52 fit withroom to spare.

Just past location 9, the track laid this fall starts. Very nice looking, even with the sags and high spots.

Looking at Location 10.



Made it to EOT, and got Casey fired up and loaded.
