On the SR&RL site eccept for the operating dates nothing has been up dated for some time. They have a projects list for which cars were being worked on like coach 5 but nothing on it since around 2000. Have they finished it or is it still being worked on or what?

       Gentelmen of the board and all members
     I resently recived the letter for donations. In this letter I noted a request for $7500 for the road to the leachfield. I think this is a waste of money. There are several reasons I say this. 1 running the line that far is a waste of materals that cost a lot of money. 2 This line needs to slope down for its entire leinght so at 400ft long this means it will have to go very deep. 3 The line will have to cross a stream bed dont know about Maine rules, codes,or regulations but in Arizona this is not a good thing. This said I think a better location would be at J were the car storage barn would be on the plan. I think that area would meet the codes,rules,etc.. Now this would mean the car barn could not be built there. So where to put the car barn? well at the location where the leachfield was to be located sorta. the location should be as far west as posable and north of the stream bed. But now you're saying there is no track near there? So how? Why with a Y of course. what you say? With a Y that starts with a switch just north of the present yard lead switch into a cruve of about 200fr radius. Then the west switch into the west tail track to near the west property line just north of the streambed bank.Then the north leg on another 200ft or so radius back to the mainline. I know the curves are tight but should be able to be handled by your equitment. I know this is very radical but there is more to this but I want to start you all thinking about this idea.I wanted to present sometime ago but could not get it to post. I will explane more if you are interested.
