I saw some puns on here. Better cut it off before it grows too unwieldy. Then again, if I log off, I might pine to read it once again.

Any more tree puns and Fred will be here with his chainsaw.

I think you all need to stay away from the wood for awhile - beginning to sound like the Beaver family newsletter..... :o

I should’ve cut the whole tree down. Then I could’ve made a stump speech and formEd that splinter group. Instead of having a board of directors I could be a director of boards. Oak-Kay enough for now before I become so poplar that some son of a birch tries to cy-press my speech.

Don't let all this pine stuff needle you. Also, Where did you pitch the wood when you got done? All this wood talk could give me a splitting headache.

Yep, I can't touch that either.  I just might as well pack up and head back to the lodge.

That's some chestnut you just posted, Dana.

I think it may be time to split this post.

Fred, we left it next to the tracks in just in case we need to use it to open a branch line.

Dragging this thread back to the trunk line....

Work done on Saturday July 18:

* Ballasting: 3 cars unloaded in the morning by a crew of around 15, I think.  We finished up the unballasted sections south of the bridge.
* Car barn: Stewart was painting on the doors.
* Pavilion: Jeff Verney dug Mike some holes.
* Yard track work: Steve P led a crew that found the unspiked tie under the Bay 4 joint into the car shop.  Then a really bad tie was replaced on the run-around track.
* Machine shop: I saw Carlos and Jerry in, but didn't catch on what they were doing.
* Tank car: the donor who gave the money to restore Tank car 14 was at the Museum for a short ceremony for the plaque denoting his effort in memory of his father.

Yes, please, photos, including where it was placed on the tank car.

Does Catherine have any idea in when they want to put on the SONY lettering??
