Ed,  you might want to include a disclaimer.  Following some of the discussion groups, it seems a few do not realize that it's April Fools Day.  Although I think it would be really cool to see a Garrett on the Mountain, I would rather start off with a USATC Davenport to get the learning curve going.

i must have missed something.  What is XCart Engineering?  Are we building our own fleet of pedal power buggies?  Actually I think that would be a money maker for all those days when we don't have scheduled trains.

Now that we have a pavilion, and hopefully a BBQ pit in the future (hint hint) - we could definitely advertise a BBQ and Beer outing.  Of course we would need more tables and benches along with the pit.

I certainly hope there will be a major push to build the new passenger platform / gift shop / ticketing counter as we have been operating in work-around mode for far too long.  We have a lot of carpentry capable members from away.  Put out the word and many will show up with tools and equipment if needed.

Looks like a prime project for the SWW cast of characters.  Hope that most/all the material needed to complete will be on site.

Wonderful photos Kevin!  You keep exceeding my expectations.  I'd love to see what the album would look like completely in B&W.

Although I love Tower of Power - for the music, it's not an equipment name.

Now, since the Kubota is being designed for multiple tasks I would suggest that it be named "JACK".  As in "jack of all trades" which is befitting of its purpose.

After spending a wonderful vacation in Ireland this summer, Digby O'Dell has a pleasant ring to me.

What are we naming the excavator?  I propose "Digger Dan" or "Dan the Digger".

I would suggest taking one of the pax cars along on the work train with one or two kerosene heaters in it so folks can warm up when needed and prevent any potential cases of frostbite.

The big goal is to get those doors up and closed.  Getting the building enclosed will make it easier to accomplish the remaining tasks.
