Now we need to come up with a name for 1015.

Fred already came up with one, but it's not worthy of repeating.

Mike, what's your testing plan.  I sort of assume the dozer is last?!

I don't want all the credit. We had talked about it for a while, and finally decided it was time to act. I have put a lot of hours into the car, and am not done yet. More modifications planned for this winter. Need to install adjustable supports, at least one per side, to prevent the car from tipping when we use the excavator to mow from it.

Testing.. I think the only testing will be loading the dozer and try it around the yard. Through switches especially, just to see how the car acts.

Does WW&F  have an official MOW vehicles storage track?

Just saw the photos. It great to see 1015 on the rails and with a load.

That's funny.  I was going to suggest:  "Fred."

Very nice, Mike.  Thanks!
What–me worry?

Interesting way to "Hy-Rail" the Kubota.

I hate to be the one to say this, but it appears we need a longer car barn.

With trepidation for the next line, perhaps we can put a siding on the woods track that runs thru a series of containers with the ends removed which would allow all the ROMO and MOW equipment to be stored out of the elements, and, with apologies to mike, since they are not historically correct, out of visitors view.

On the other hand, when the roundhouse is built, there should be space in the shop for most of the MW fleet. In addition, at least a couple of pieces could be stored in the Whitefield section house along with the handcars. At least that's what I envisioned when I originally laid out the plans for that structure. And with regard to Bill's suggestion about containers, if we built a track car turntable, we could store the smaller pieces in another container set out next to the first one!

Ira,

You are so FRED, or such a clever guy.

Wayne,

Now that is out of the box thinking.... or perhaps it is "in" the box thinking.

Is there room to tie in another spur, outside of and next to the unseen west car barn wall, with a simple, lean-to roof, maybe walls?
IIRC, that was formerly the site for storing Case-y, the mighty dozer.
BTW, I vote for 'FRED', the now-handy 1015.   ;)
