Is there a plan for the egg hunt at AC?
It doesn't look promising that the snow will be all gone by Saturday.

Hopefully the kids bring snow boots or snow shoes. :) Could add an all new level to searching for eggs. Maybe thats why they started coloring them years ago, because white eggs are too hard to find in the snow?

Don't color some and call them "stealth eggs".  Special prize if you find one, but not by stepping on it!

Work done on Saturday March 24:

* Snow: Mike took the dozer up to Averill Road, and plowed in from 218 to Alna Center.  The diesel engine was taken up and plowed the siding.  The sun has nicely taken care of the mainline.  Upon return, Brendan and Mike amused themselves by pushing the snowpiles back into bigger snow piles, to make room for parking for next weekend.

The more I see pictures of what “Casey” accomplishes for us the more I wonder how we got along without him.

Anticipated work for Saturday March 31:

* Easter Eggspress: pretty much all efforts will be toward doing this.
* Presentation prep: Anything that needs to get finished up for our plan presentation to the townspeople on Monday will need to happen.

Some pictures from Jason of no. 9 being tested after the annual boiler inspection and a trip to Alna Center for Easter prep.

It was a truly gorgeous day to be out on the railroad with No. 9

That shot of Steve is awesome. Looks like he was meant to be in a smokebox.

Seeing the smokebox pic reminded me of a question I have, (most likely for Jason).  How often do we run a tube/flue brush through #9 to clean her out?  Secondly, how is the smokebox cinder blowout working?

Looks like Steve is now the hamster that makes it all run.  Really, that's how it works, the steam is just for show.

How long did it take Steve to get into the smokebox? More importantly, how long did it take him to get out? ;D
