That is so funny...this video was recommended to me by The Algorithm earlier this evening. Imagine my surprise when I check the forum and see it here.

Then again maybe I shouldn't be so surprised... We are all certainly a type around here  ;D

Correction for Track work Saturday: ballast service track at SS.  Hoping the loader can do most of the work, with hand work to smooth it and form nice shoulders. 

Thanks,
Jason

A worthy 600mm line in Germany discussed in a Tom Scott Video:

The Lorenbahn, the L├╝ttmoorsiel-Nordstrandischmoor island railway, is famous for the tiny, private trains that take residents to and from the mainland. But that's not why it was built: and it's got a more useful purpose as well.

Steve, great report as usual.

Mike, that's terrific news about the buried conduit.  Running wire should be relatively easy compared to digging and burrowing.

Can't wait to see the next steps until all of our buildings have reliable electricity (and communications)!!!
