Hans completed the installation of the header planks on the Party Car to be. He reports it was easier on the back to do it now rather than wait until the car is lowered in place.
Ted and Jim worked in the shade of the Calder Shop for a good part of the day but that didn't keep the sweat off their brow. Without a breeze through the shop, it wasn't a whole lot cooler when one has to contort into pretzel shapes to get a few tasks done on 1392.
Don did some sand blasting on the knuckle of CN 4 to get some errant paint off it. Paint is always an unwelcome addition to knuckles - railway and human.
Phil caught up on a few little handyman chores around the site and never broke a sweat. He's a cool guy!
Barry had a super-large crew of CSV and had them do a myriad of tasks helping Hans on the Party Car, weeding the garden at the station, trimming the never ending grass, scraping some paint and a little rot off the siding of the engineer car and unloading the 380 pieces of donated lumber from Don's trailer and dry piling them in the stock car. The only downside was the lasagne was a might thin for that size of crowd and Barry didn't get seconds.
Jamie chased wasps for most of the day with varied success and managed to find nothing to do in shady areas in between.
We had a railfan visitor from Ottawa drop in and take a stroll around the site. Herb was more than happy to accept the cash donation the generous fellow pressed upon him.
