Track Updates for January 24, 1999

John LaCosta    S aturday (1/23)
Ed Amrhein and I repaired the Visitor's Center doorbell. Rick Obbink, Dennis Yeager and Gary continued working on 1164's truck machining wear plates. Ed Amrhein, Dan Lawrence and I worked on completing the installation of power and lights to area in the shop that will house our signal system.

     Sunday (1/24)
Dan Lawrence was Dispatcher with Rick Williams, John Diffenbach, Paul Ritterhoff and Carl Thistle as crew. The raining weather cut down on the visitors.

     Rick Obbink continued to machine the wear plates for 1164's truck and I finished up installation and testing of the 28th street signal contactor.

     The excitement of the day was when a tree fell on the overhead wires just north of the freight shed. It took Rick and I, with the help of a front-end loader that was passing by, about 1/2 hours to get the line back open.
