There appeared to be the remains of at least one flatcar, because you could see rotting timbers and smaller metal hardware such as corner J bolts.

So, for the next restoration project we are going to jack up the corner bolts and put a new flatcar underneath? Right?

Don't worry...
after too long it will be Edisoned to "Whimsical, Wiredness, and Foolery."

I hope Ed leaves us be...

It's not hard to imagine the Kubota fitted with hy-rail gear and link/pin couplers, taking a couple tip cars out and ditching... all with one operator.

Considering Electricity will be installed, and the increased activity in the building in general, it appears to be time to reconsider fire suppression.

Here’s hoping Lightning and Co. will be there to set the pace.

Current weather forecast is for Lightning (and Thunder) all four days...   ;)

I've already made hotel reservations and roped in my two younger brothers... It'll be great to be there!

Thanks for the info on where things happen.

The second shot of that flatcar looks eerily similar to pictures of scrapping operations in the 30s...

That's the original sheathing of 309. The shadow of the number can be just made out on the in the 4th photo
