The new Hercules mill is now running. Its electrical control internals are a bit bodged up.  But all feeds and speeds are functional.

“Bodged up”?

Is Bodged an official Texas term or is “Bodged” a little less confused than Boggled?

Bodged is a British term for something cobbled together.

It's mind boggling but thanks for the vocabulary lesson.

Moving North..
Dozer and Excavator are headed to the Trout Brook Preserve. The weekday crew has gotten some silt fence up ahead of time, and Saturday I can start prepping the grade. There are 5 culverts to install (counting the temporary entrance), stumping, ditching and grading to be done, plus the contractor will be hauling in gravel to make the ground more stable.. All this will be done by the end of June.

A busy WW&F June ahead.
Will 218 ROW side of Trout Brook  get all these culverts installed? I'm assuming yes.

Yes, the north side of Trout Brook needs its culverts before grading and bridge work can begin in earnest.

Our schedule for grade and bridge prep will be tight and intense from this point on.  There’ll come a time this summer when we will be calling on extra help, both weekday and Saturdays.

But the results will be most rewarding!

See ya

Work done on Saturday May 26:

* Percival Stairs: Mike dug the foundation hole for the 2nd story stair landing.  Zack had built a form and the form went in the ground then got buried.  Concreting sometime later.
* Ballast: We ballasted the remainder of the west side of the track on Davis Grade, then switched to the east side.  We brought back a few old ties.
* Caboose: Marcel was working on the windows of the cupola.
* Machine shop/wood shop: the last machine to make the quad in the extension got moved into place.  The table saw got moved into Bay 4.
* Mountain Extension: Mike moved the equipment to Rt 218 crossing and started digging for culverts.

A crew made up of Mark C, Steve L, Steve Z, HWMNBN and myself traveled all the way to Puddledock to assist the Alna Historical Society by removing shutters and moving large stage (not staging) pieces at the Puddledock School. It was all part of the WW&F Ry giving back to the community efforts. We were rewarded with still warm apple brownies which were shared with the Sheepscot crew at lunch.

I did go digging for culverts, but not before I had to assist myself out of a sticky situation..
