Bill,

The bottom ones were bent that way originally to hook onto framing. The center step is supposed to be like the top 3 originally, but again is like that to catch a framing member, then bent to get it to the proper spacing.

Funny you should mention that - Saturday we were thinking once the Mountain Extension is complete we paint it some bright neon color, park it at the end of the track by 218, with a "Visit the WW&F Railway Museum!" message on it.

Why go with a picture? Take one of Fred's chairs from TOM and set it down by 218. Provide Fred with a small table and some lemonade. ;D

I forgot to add - and a big umbrella, in case it's raining or too hot. :o

Put a chain saw beside the chair so he can explain how he singlehandedly cleared the ROW, which he almost did.

If you keep talking about Fred and his use of a chain saw, he's going to start looking for those different type of tree call a homosapien, it has only Four limbs to cut. You might say I'm branching out in a new direction!!!

So you are saying Fred is "a cut above the rest"?
