The string of cars including CP5000 was moved from the gate into the yard west of Calder.This is so that PNR Railworks can do some work out there. Terry, Ted and Ivan completed the job on Wednesday.
Thanks to Don's efforts on our behalf - keeping PNR satisfied with the arrangements and generally working with them we have had significant track work done already.
Hans has built a picket fence beside the garden to replace the lattice work that was falling apart. He is working steadily on the Refrigerator Car, and has built a dike at the entrance to the carpenter shop to keep the water at bay.
Phil continues to repair Boxcar 503939. One door is finished and the second one is about ready to install. It looks very good.
Barry has divided his time between the car and the grounds. He has done a great job of keeping the grass down.
Terry has prepared a schedule for operations for the balance of the year.
He is still looking for volunteers.
Velma Pringle is in the University Hospital with serious complications resulting from her kidney failure. She is on the kidney machine permanently.
We send our best wishes to Velma and Dennis.
