Linda and Conrad are a new addition to our volunteer corps who found us on Facebook several months ago, and have been waiting patiently until regular weekday volunteering opened up again. We're glad they found us!

The track crew also jacked up the bay 4 lead then leveled and tamped it. We also finally removed the big oak limb that was hanging over the tracks at Cock Eye Curve.  A lot of work got done yesterday on many projects. A good day!

Awe, you took the big limb down? That was a long sucker and survived the highest load moved on the WW&F to date (trusses)..but glad it has been removed before it bevame an issue.

Another great report Steve. Please keep them coming. Makes me wish I could miss work to be able to attend

That was one heavy limb! It wasn’t far from being an issue.
