To those that thought of this, it was a great idea. And some of the crew consistently went through the train asking if anyone needed water. It was very hot in the cars with limited air movement. The longer the train sat, the hotter it got..

Thanks for the Kudos Ted but I could not have done it alone. None of us could. Team work.

Everyone has played a part in this extension becoming a reality, and one group of which has yet to be mentioned. The donors. Without funding, whether it was grants, donations, awards, or what have you, we would still be inching along as funding allowed. A huge thank you to them.

In the spirit of the Grand Opening of the Mountain Extension, I am reposting one of my favorite pictures of the ground work being done to open the extension. This was the first true big hurdle we had to tackle, and tackle it we did... Location 1. 4 foot x 45 foot steel culvert, the bottom of which was 13 feet below grade.

The single rung is a handle. There will be a stirrup below the car and the bar is needed to hang on to if the brakeman should need to be there for what ever reason (shove move for instance)

I took off the leaking line from the Backhoe to go to Napa. But before I left I spotted another steel line that I wanted to replace. It had been kinked in 2 spots. And loaded the 1 ton with a bucket and a half of stone for TOM



The leaker



And the kinked one. Not sure how the oil was getting through.



Got the backhoe together then it was time to mow..





Now that we have a push mower, I won't let it get so tall..

Was it recorded? I wanted to attend at least the morning but the Backhoe killed that idea.

Update for Saturday. Stone cars will be loaded in the morning (loader has to go to AC first thing) and a couple buckets put on the 1 ton for TOM. Backhoe needs a transmission line repaired and mowing around the Pavilion after lunch.
