I am thinking of taking the Kubota to end of track and get started there. Depending on the tamping crew if I can get the dozer up there as well

Guess with all the ties cut up, that means I should really start sorting rail? I hope to make it a day or two next week to begin getting the 180 rails needed. We actually only need 160, but might as well set out some extras. And depending on whats left,, we may sort through the remaining pile.

With regard to the rails of lower quality, what is the criteria for rejection? Will they still be suitable for use on sidings?

Hi Paul, Last Saturday while moving the tamper down the grade headed north, There was many spots were Mike has been ditching the track that was layed last fall.
With only a two man crew we started at the north end and tamped the gauge side of the track.

Does the 160 include the passing siding at EOT (Rt. 218)?

Nope. The 160 is only main line rail. I estimate we will need a few more lengths on the main, and a decent amount for the siding. However those lengths are to be determined still. The siding length is set, however may vary slightly.

Unfortunately I wont be able to make it this Saturday. If a crew is able to tamp I would be very appreciative.

Sorry -- I'm working tomorrow, though I'd much rather be tamping.
What–me worry?

Light crew day today.  Mike was about the only one doing anything not related to passenger operations.  He took the Kubota to the end of track and is leaving it there for grading purposes.

I even loaded some wood up for Fred. I have some Hemlock logs I'd like to bring back for him too. Maybe I'll put them on the equipment car and ship them south when I fetch the dozer.. Equipment car is stationed at EOT until the next time we need it. Out of the way up there..
