2 questions:
Will the grade be tapered up to the bridge on a long angle?
Has any thought been given to the idea of pre-staging bundles of ties, along the r.o.w. by driving through the bridge using the Copeland truck, say early the week before FWW?
My thought being, some ties could be laid ahead of the rail crane car, saving space on the car for rails. Then when the flatcar goes south for more rail, a remaining crew could place another group of ties; maybe volunteers not actively spiking. Actually, why not place all the ties ahead of dropping the rails in plce?

how many gals. capacity compared to the one by the tool house? would this smaller one have been used for kerosene?

Hi, All:
I'm not your spike man, but have rotated through the other spike team positions for a couple of work weekends. I'll be up Fri. - Mon., doing what I can, wherever needed. I'll try to be available to help with picking rail and other prep work, late Aug. and Sept. See you on the Narrow Gauge!

will any work be scheduled to be done Sun.?

End of Sun., SWW, Dana asked myself and a helper, whose name I've forgotten, to put all the jacks and lining bars that had been set and removed following the tamper breakdown, in the caboose.
