Work done Saturday Nov 13:

* Track: a crew spiked most of the service track and all of the enginehouse run-through track today.
* Engine house: Fred was driving the whip on rafters, getting them cut and beveled.  They ran out at noon and more arrived.  Brendan put up a couple in the afternoon.  There was a crew siding the west wall.
* Merchandise move: Nicole and I, helped by Brian and Dave, moved store inventory from upstairs in the car shop to the Percival basement.  A huge thank-you to Nicole for doing a lot of bringing things down the stairs.
* Coach 9: Alan was working on pedestals and other stuff for the coach.
* Mike was working on something but I didn't catch what.  He ran the Barth tractor up to SeaLyon.
* Board meeting.

Steve Lennox and crew have erected this fence to keep the area behind the Tool House neat. A very nice looking addition.





Dave helped me cover the area we buried pipes in with hay. This area will be reworked in the spring.



Track work



Enginehouse work





Spiked track at the end of the day.

Mike, I'm a little confused.  Are the buried conduits between the electrical house and everywhere else now fully connected?

Thanks.
Bob

The conduits are all in. They run fron the electrical building to the shop, the house, the Engine house and the car barn, with spare conduit run between the electrical building, house, shop and a distribution box buried near the engine house. Ready for wires..

Steve, great report as usual.

Mike, that's terrific news about the buried conduit.  Running wire should be relatively easy compared to digging and burrowing.

Can't wait to see the next steps until all of our buildings have reliable electricity (and communications)!!!

Correction for Track work Saturday: ballast service track at SS.  Hoping the loader can do most of the work, with hand work to smooth it and form nice shoulders. 

Thanks,
Jason
