It was noted that there are hooks near the ceiling on both sides for hammocks. James set a discount price of $5.00 a night for those desiring accommodations in the storage unit as it's a hike to the bathroom. ;<)

Dave--wonder if Appalachian Trail hikers would be interested? ;^}
Jason--"...prepare for a major (shop) project to commence this summer." Might it involve bending, riveting metal for a locomotive or two?

Only if they make a 100-mile detour to the coast!

I thought this was the vice-president's new office.

Don't underestimate the Appalachian Trail hikers straying from the trail.  It was on a 'zero day' my brother and I took while hiking the AT in Maine that we decided to find and ride the Maine 2 footers.  The rest, as they say, is history and I have been coming back every year since then.  That was well over a decade ago.

Work done on Saturday March 25 (today with pictures!):

* Boxcar 67: Zack finished the long belt rails and got one of the short end belt rails up.
* Storage container: Some pieces were brought in during the week.  Today, Fred brought in a bunch of lumber from home for shelves, and Steve Z helped build some shelves at the far end of the container:

* Shop Bay 2 cleaning: Some things from the shop were moved to the container during the week, and today as well.  The bench that's been on the east wall of Bay 2 by the door between the two bays for as long as I've been around was cleaned off, taken off the wall, trimmed a little, and moved to between Bays 2 and 3.  It was a tight fit, and now it's lag bolted in.  Where it used to be:

And where it is now:

* Archives: Linda worked to identify and organize modern photos.
* Timetable: Jason and I discussed the new timetable.

The bench is slightly higher than it was. This is in anticipation of the cement floor. If then it is still too high, we can lower it easier than we moved it.
