Tie delivery
« on: August 06, 2017, 10:13:31 PM »
The museum had 1200 ties delivered a couple of weeks ago. Some of the ties are being used as temporary cribbing for the shop project and one flatcar load has been delivered to T.O.M. so far.

Looking at that cribbing all I could think of is a giant Jenga puzzle game.  Play with the grandkids all the time.
