November 2019 Work Reports
« on: October 30, 2019, 10:08:32 AM »
Anticipated work for Saturday November 2:

* Rock the Mountain - ballasting on The Mountain, I think starting around the bridge.  There may be some jacking and tamping involved.
* B&SR Tankcar 14

Are you planning to use 14 as a flatcar until its tank is rebuilt?

It is not our car. We would need permission from MNG. But why scuff up the decking and get dirt and dust all over it before the tank is put on? I would say no.

Photos for today's Mountain Extension work can be found here.

My last photos until at least the end of the month.
What–me worry?

I called Contractor Jeff last night with an update on the Pavilion site. He said he may start Saturday.

I believe once the tank car flat has left the building, coach 9 is the next project on the list.  Don't know if the massive timbers have arrived yet.

After all that work on Flat #14, I hope it isn't left out in the elements.  Since space is tight right now, let's at least get a good tarp(s) to cover and keep the water off of it if it's going to sit outside for the winter.

The flat car deck was rebuilt with pressure treated lumber. The beams and sills have also all been treated appropriately. While indoor storage is always preferred, this car is no different than the other 4 flat cars already in service, all stored outdoors.

Also, the top surfaces plus an inch or so on each side of the beams and sills were all covered with Ice Shield.  The same thing was done to the moose trout brook bridge under structure to protect those parts from the elements.
