    • Today, after work, and going potty, and changing my clothes, I discovered the track crew was starting on the spring rehab of the railroad.

       

      So right now we are ahead of schedule. The rehab doesn't usually start until AFTER the ECLSTS. But when the sun went below the treeline, the cold wind put a stop to the track-work for today.

       

      Tom Morrow, my foreman, pointed out to me something he had discovered. I had purchased some used Aristo stainless 8 foot track at auction, for repairs and such. Some of the track has AML ties on it. He showed me the difference in the Aristo ties and the AML ties.

       

       

      To my eye they look close enough, so I had Tom put the AML ties in the pile of new ties. When we have broken ties that need replaced, we will use some of the AML ties as well as the Aristo ones we have.

    • Tomorrow is the official 1st day of spring. It doesn't look like trains will be running on the C.V.S.Ry. Outdoor Div. anytime soon...

      In case you don't recognize it, that's an Aristo stilt mounted switch tower. Window bottoms are about 10 scale feet above the rail heads.  I didn't get a shot, but my large engine house is just starting to peek out from under a drift.

    • Still 124" of snow up where we usually have our first ride of the season. So my spring is late June, prolly. :-)

      For me (Western NY) both "meteorological spring", April 1, and "Calendar spring", Spring Equinox on March 20, are both off..both too early.

      Around here, March is always the 5th and last month of winter..Spring begins April 1st..

      Pretty much the same here.  We can still see winter till 2nd week of april.  But I still like to go with the official meteorological spring of March 1.  I also prefere Dec 1 as the official start of winter. lol
