Stephen thanks for this itemized report. I'm happy  about seeing things coming along on every front despite the situation. I can't wait for the reopening.

Work done on Saturday, July 25:

* Ballasting: Two flatcars of ballast were spread where the lift happened this week (the end of the road on the Fossel property), then the third flatcar was emptied at various spots along the grade that needed it, with the remainder put beyond the bridge.
* Water tank: Zack and Stewart cleaned out the inside of the tank, and filled it.
* Gift shop: Stewart did some organizing in the gift shop.
* Concrete delivery: Concrete was poured for the floor of the electrical distribution building, the bottom of the north stairs at the Percival house, and the pavilion foundations.

Brendan and I hustled to build and set forms for the electrical building and the step for the stairs. We finished the second form and the truck pulled in.
Cement showed up just before 9..



And he left the Pavilion an hour later







I gave the step a brushed finish and edged with my edger



Brendan set the anchors for the electrical building while I was headed to AC



I walked in the shop just as Jerry (right) and Carlos were getting the riveter to move.

Doing way too much to list...

Creating the pad for the electrical building, IMHO, is a HUGE step forward, and one I've been hoping for at least a couple of years.

Modern electrical distribution is Critical for our growth, and has been underappreciated.  Example: we need power in the expanded carbarn and museum.

Hopefully, we can make building the structure to support this asap.

And a big shout out and "thank you" to those who do all of this.

There are also countless hours of volunteer projects occurring off-site. This includes everything from various administrative tasks to at-home shop projects. If you have spare time, and want to help, please let us know!

With little reporting recently about new construction, cleanup and upkeep  around WW&F, what a pleasant surprise to read of so many projects receiving attention!  ;D
I would guess the frustration over having so much to do, being stalled by coronavirus, then finding ways to continue needed tasks is motivating "gitting 'er done", railroad-wide.   ;)
 
Love dose pics !
