It was never in a container. It was shipped on a flat rack. Only had a tarp to keep weather away.

Tamper will be unloaded next week See Wayne's report above.

I heard tamper will be placed on a open trailer for it's highway trip north

Hi Stephen, On the main line switch, Check for two or three switch ties that are two high. Ties need to be removed and cribs lowered. The high ties is what makes it hard to get the rails to set in place when moving the rails.till later, dwight

Mike did find a second hornet nest, shaped like they should be built.
