Even though it is “complete” there seems to be a lot of detail work on the caboose project.  I did get the 765 out of the shop and drained the tender. We had filled it to find the leaks in the tank and now that it is drained, I can get inside and find the holes from the inside. This will allow us to more fully evaluate the extent of the problem.



Over the week the tank will be further inspected, and the extent of the repairs needed will be evaluated.  Still hope to start making some firebrick.



A level of safety in the workplace where incidents do not frequently occur does not guarantee future success, however it is generally an indication of a strong safety culture. It is up to all of us to never let our guard down. Continuous safety maintenance is the backbone of a strong safety culture and a truly safe workplace. Safety maintenance means that all parties wear the required and proper PPE, follow all safety policies and procedures and lookout for fellow members and visitors and that the rules are strictly enforced. It also means that in these times health safety can impact one’s security more so than a workplace physical incident.


Everyone must follow the guidelines set forth by the Health Care Community to protect one’s self and prevent spread of the COVID virus. Only by doing so will we be able to return to some level of normality. Everyone must do their part to enable normality to return. 

Health safety guidelines must be enforced and followed by all persons, members, and visitors when engaged in Society activities.
