On Saturday, October 1, Dwight Maxey, Colin Mellin, Reid Adams and Paul Brown got to work on a project to get a couple of ties prepped for placement under our switch. It took a bit to round up a suitable tool to cut out the notches, and then we found solid oak ties cut very slow! The sawsall and blade we were using were capable, but a bit small for the task at hand. Regardless, we kept taking shifts to man the saw and were able to complete one of the notches of four needed. Next weekend, we will have to work better in order to get the job completed and ties installed under the track!
I have included a couple of pictures of the project work and a before and after picture of some work done in the yard earlier in the week.
