Great, just let me know when you plan your date with the woods.

I would like to say that the museam shouldnt overlook the oportunity to lift rail of any weight.  It can always be sold for rail we need or even just cash.  especially if the rail is offered really, really cheap per ton, or just given to us. (remove it and you can have it). 

I have an idea that could really speed up the removal of rail by hand without damaging it.  I'll try to put it in a nutshell.

The gandy dancers really have the timing of laying track, what about running it in reverse?  #51 and the 4 wheel metal flats could possibly fit on a snowmobile trailer and be taken to the site.  The photos on the website sure make them look small. Then the could be stored in a colapsable wooden shed on site. Now combine this with say a 1/2 mile or so of light (33#) rail (track length) and a comprable amount of Insta-Track timbers, you could run the Insta-track between the standard gauge rails on the leveled fill and transport everything taken up back to a single point.  This also allows tools and people to be moved to the site by motive power instead of walking.  Everything taken out would have the possibility of being re-used.  The pulled spikes can be used by the museam to lay our maineline/sidings ect (or if too damaged sold for scrap), the rail/jointbars(fishplates?) can be sold for cash/traded for 60#/or used if 60# to lay our mainline, the tieplates can be sold for profit.  There is even the chance of getting relay ties that we can cut to 5ft size. 

Well I tried to keep it concise and clear.  Any thoughts/questions?

would that be near where the ROW passes by Head Tide Church Road and crosses Head Tide Road?

I am looking at google maps with the kmz file of the ROW and trying to make a guess.

I don't live too far away and would like to make a visit or two for logging the ROW.

hi all,

I am just wondering if anyone can let me know when the cutting will start and what we do with the felled wood.
