  Mike ,    Thanks for the pictures of the earth work of the north yard.  The rain will help settle the dirt work and show if any additional  dirt work will be needed for water run off.  These pictures really show the progress the museum is making in building the restrooms.       Fred Kuhns

It may dry out enough to walk on but if you break the surface, in you go.

Right you are Mike.  I took a "short cut" across the area just north of the Percival house on track weekend and it was extremely muddy to the point of sucking your feet in. Your pics really highlight the wetlands that area has turned into with all the rain.

As a suggestion, it would be very fitting to name the new north switch leading to the north yard "Percival".
What do you all think?

I think you're onto something Ira.

As for the switch, Everything will need to be built or forged again. Nothing that can't be done. Need to get the Frame out of the way so we could use the mill again.
