Thanks, Mike--greatly appreciated.  I had hoped to be there today, purposely clearing my work calendar, but then we had the all too frequent poor management work chaos intervene Friday, so I still had to work today and will again tomorrow.

What–me worry?

Great photos, Mike. It looks like it was a very successful day. What weight rail are they using? It looks pretty small.

It kept changing. Some was 25 inside with what seemed like mostly 32 outside. Sharon says she can't walk 60 feet without a change in rail size, even on the main.

Work done on Saturday November 12:

* Vehicles - Mike worked on the dozer, and probably some other things but I didn't get over that way much today.
* Engine house - Stewart was shingling
* MNG Loco 1 - Arrived on site this week for some truck work (dragging wheel), Jason got it going and then moved it from the ramp track to the lower yard, then ultimately over to engine house 2.  Once on the ramp the wheel started working fine.  It will be worked on by ML&M.
* Platform deconstruction - A good sized crew succeeded in dismantling most of the platform boards, leaving room to get into the gift shop and station.
* Board meeting @ 4.

I dug out the little yellow forklift to get it ready to send away with the big yellow forklift.

I worked on the dozer, and was able to figure how much was needed to be machined from the sprockets and where. Oddly enough the numbers match my rough measurements I did this spring, so they must be right.



Cody helped me put a hydraulic Cylinder on the Backhoe, then we worked on the brakes on the case loader a little.
