From the track crews point of view, I'd like to see each tamper have its own skate, #52 have 1 long and 1 short handle skate and maybe stage a skate at AC and TOM inside Prebble. We can always use more trigs, we seem use them up on a regular basis and what some brakeman are using for a substitute is unacceptable or useless and dangerous.

To both builders John and Bill, the new pieces are greatly appreciated. The additional InstraTrak improves our track building ability as well as retire a few old ones. The skates are working out great specially with center block allowing the skate to be used on either side of the car. The more skates we have available saves brakeman time from hunting for the skate that you really need and it isn't any where around. Thanks guys.
