Goals Set and Achieved
With snow drifts piled high and lots of the white stuff everywhere from Thursday’s little snow fall, the parking lot was again full of volunteer cars and trucks.
Thanks to Lukas and Ivan, 1392’s throttle valve was installed, adjusted and the steam dome closed. New-new mounting hardware was picked up by Ivan as the last set turned out to be a couple of threads short. Thanks Ivan for the drive into Ft Saskatchewan to get the pieces.
Ken showed up just in time to anneal the copper ring gasket for the steam dome and continued on with securing and tightening a loose air compressor and bracket. Thanks Ken.
Jim reported for duty after coming ashore from a long southern cruise to regale us all with his travel exploits and to led a hand in repairs and retrieving fallen items. Thanks Jim and glad that you are feeling better. In a week or so we will have you slugging it out with a smile on your face.
Barry C was in full Supervisor role in directing the CSV crew that showed up today. Between painting, scraping and shoveling out switches and side walks, I don’t know where you found the time to cook up a hearty meal to feed a dozen hungry and frozen individuals, bravo Barry on success for your efforts.
On Track #3, wood chips and sawdust was in the air as Phil and Jamie were hard at the relentless task of repairing and replacing bits and pieces of the NAR boxcar. It’s starting to look like its ready to re-enter revenue service.
All in all, a very productive day.
