Yes!

And a question, what is the meaning of the "R" sign alongside the track near the culvert repair?

The R on green is for resume. That is the end of the restriction. On the other side of that is a 10 (or was it 5?) on yellow backing, meaning there is a restricted speed there, which is noted on the notice board.

That's a 10 mph zone for the ML&M switch area. If the tamping crew hit that while they're there for the repair that'd probably be enough to lift the restriction there (I think....maybe).

Thank you Mike for the report and all those photos  that go show that the revival of the railway is  definitly on the right track.

Thanks to James and Mike for leading a fun and productive day. It was hot, dry, and dusty and I was down about a pint courtesy of the black flies, but felt really good about all we accomplished yesterday. Good crew, good work. Thanks to the midweek crew for teeing you the ball!

Dana, I have a word for auto correct that is not as nice as darned. No doubt about it, auto correct was invented by an embittered typing teacher who was laid off because not enough kids were enrolling for the class, and it is clearly designed to torture hunt-and-peck typists who have to keep their eyes on the keyboard. >:(
