Now this is a teaser...

Whats the deal with cutting down trees in the woods? If I remember correctly, the rail line was no where near the woods. Hmm......

yes progress is going amazingly well, we hit a few snags along the way but its going rather smoothly all things considering! we hope to have all the rail down in 2 or 3 weeks, however we are running low on supplies again. our 5 gallon pail of spikes is almost empty, and we are almost out of the 34 rail joiners i made! have enough steel for probably 10 more though. we are going to start working thursdays now also to get it done. good stuff guys!

rail work has started for 2008. should be a real good run we will have down for the labor day party this year. also, for the several rail equipment demonstration days we will be hosting there will be a longer run each time. we are also thinking of doing some rail work with the public on those days.
