I take it that this ramp will replace the one at the SS platform?

This will serve as temporary ADA access at SS while the platform is being rebuilt.  The new platform will include a wood ramp.  After that, this unit is portable for use as needed.

Nice long ramp.  It being aluminum it will be durable and easy to rearrange and relocate as our needs change.  Good grab by Mike.

Work done on Saturday June 18:

* Trout Brook Station: about 2/3rds of the siding was put on, with a morning and afternoon crew shift.  Fred and Zack were there for both halves of the day.
* Enginehouse: Siding finished for the run-through bay north-west side.
* Alna Center: Mike was burying phone wire.
* Trailer: I did some scraping, but where it's supposed to rain tomorrow I decided not to paint.

In the Facebook pictures of the work on the TBS I love the placement of Fred's chair so he could look out for trains that might be highballing down the mountain.

Three "BBQ & Farmstand Express" trains ran, carrying roughly 180-200 passengers to ToM for a cookout hosted by SeaLyon Farm.

Any  possibility of a conduit under the tracks there for provision of a magphone inside?
Thanks!

Dan and I tamped part of the mountain on Friday. With a sudden thunderstorm that quickly blew in, we found ourselves soaked to the bone in less than 5 minutes. But we braved the storm and kept working till I had to leave.

You could always simply route it thru the turtle by-pass.  I am sure they wouldn't mind.

The turtles wouldn't mind, but what about the Turtle Lady?

Mike has to finish phone line installation. Parking lot will be late July now. I am only there until noon Saturday, and then not again until the Board meeting on the 9th (FD function that morning).
