Some of the pipes are for communication..
i.e. telephone and alarm

Mike, do we have a map of where the buried PVC lines actually went to during FWW 2018?

My concern is whether they went as far as the carbarn, or if that's a trenching job that still needs to be done.

Obviously (to me at least), we can't have museum display area without electricity, and if we are displaying important equipment such as Rangely in the barn area, there should be good lighting.

They do not go past the turntable. We had set a marker, which was a pressure treated 2x4, marking the ends,  but I am not even sure that is still there. We did not go further because there was no need to at the time.

I can find the end of the pipe easily, but at this point we should wait and trench to the car barn and roundhouse at the same time, which was part of Josh's original plan.

I know time is in short supply - but please map exactly where the conduit is located.

I know from experience both tile lines and electrical do not always go where you might think.
A map will help 20, 30 or more years down the line.

And Locaters can be off 5 feet and more which creates real headaches.

Wow, glad I didn't mention that the snow braces were installed this week.

Between this and posting a pic of "6" in the snow last winter, you're just pushing for there to be a freak snowstorm Friday night.

Congrats, Stewart. Does anything else need to be done to the exterior of the building?

The front / turntable side has to be shingled.  This will be done after the window is installed.
