Tents Coming Down, Barns Going Up

 Now that Thomas Days are over, the tents are being taken down rapidly, and both Thomas and Percy were loaded today onto trailers for adventures elsewhere.

Meanwhile, work is progressing rapidly on Barn 13. 

By the end of the day, all of the roof trusses were in place.

Our friends in the Track Dept. have made this nice display for the Dodge inspection car, asking for donations for its restoration.  I would think this location will last only until the end of the operating season, then it's back to Barn 2.

I did a lot of cleaning up, straightening, and sorting parts, also a few odd painting jobs.  And I finished lubricating and adjusting seats in the 309.  We're getting ready for Labor Day weekend, and are planning to run all four cars over the three days.  Be there!

Help Wanted: We need a conductor for Saturday, and could use an extra trainman on any day.  Jim West is standing by to take your call.
