The Rail department is facing a shortage of rail joiner plates, but intends to pursue further work along Phase III-A, at least to the Wye Junction with the Phase IV Memorial Bell Tower Loop. They've been rewarded with several days off, as the roadbed building crew swings back into service. Fresh from the successes with the Frozen Frog Falls crossing and the Cane Brake trestle, we can hardly wait to see what new marvels the road crew springs upon a mostly unsuspecting Leather Oaks world.
Management Thank You!
The Leather Oaks management would like to join with shareholders of the Rubber and Rawhide in thanking two of our most faithful contributors. Mike donated a precious cache of used bricks for reconstitution as roadbed supports along the elevated sections of the R&R RR. Major Mack offered invaluable service not only in providing transportation of the bricks (many of which can be seen placed strategically in the two photos) but in the reinstallation of the now very non-swayback Frozen Frog Falls bridge.
