Here are some ballsting photos.

Contractor Jeff has been great. Loading every week. I think he just likes to play with his toys.





Bob Longo sent these next ones to me to post.
They are probably not in order.











Unloading the third flat..



While this may not be the ceremony, I did get the aftermath. This reflection shot shows Dave B (left) is talking with 3 generations of railroaders. It was great to see them again.
