Outstanding! It’s great to see good friends I haven’t seen (in motion) since February. Happy holidays to each and everyone.

That’s certainly good news. I’m glad Tarah and Lenny will be continuing the tradition.

I was pleasantly surprised to see Don sporting his “WW&F Railway” hat!

re Centerline and Tie Location. Rick Sisson. 3.
I'm pleased to report that centerline and tie location marking is completed through cycle 4 - thanks KB, BS, and JS.
Our assignment can continue after Mike finishes on Saturday.

Jason and I agreed on an alignment Wednesday that leaves the rock/ledge intact.  :)

Ed -
I had T-Mobile years ago and it wasn’t too good as I recall
I’ve had Verizon for several years now and I can usually find a spot to carry on a conversation nearly any place on the railroad (including the current end of track.
Amazingly enough, I’ve experienced FaceTime conversations at several locations along the railroad as well. Don’t know how that works, but it does. :)

Thanks for the link Steve. I experienced the same slow download - I think you’re right about their server. I enjoyed the historical write up.

Ok -
How'd you squeeze the spring planks together to get the swing hangers on?

Can we get a report from Harold, Eric, and Jason on how well the flanging process is going? Any surprises?
How much time is devoted to preparation (layout, machine setup, etc.) vs. actual flanging?
Also, can you describe the die(s) that are used to form those beautiful corner bends?

Thanks Dave.
I heartily agree that having all the ancillary pieces and parts ready before installation begins is the most effective way of making the job go well.
Thanks again for all the progress you and Wayne have made in Baltimore.
