Paul’s Blog – May 7, 2022

On Saturday, May 7, we had a good size crew consisting of Kendall Crouch, Tyler Seeley, Tanner Seeley, Colin Mellin, Dwight Maxey, and Paul Brown, who came out to pay a little attention to our track. The first thing we did was to check and make some adjustments to the switch that caused us some trouble last week. We also straightened one of the point cross bars to allow the points to fit tight against the stock rail. Later next week, we will get the points built back up with welding and grinding. We also checked the gauge through the rails and set in a gauge rod to hold one area.

After a quick lunch break, we did some work to one of our switches on the shop lead tracks. This consisted of lubricating the moving parts and tightening some clamps. We finished up work and put the tools away, finally getting some much needed track work done. Don’t worry, there is more to come!

I have included a few pictures of today’s activity.
