Member Bob Topham recorded the big move Monday. First the Number 6 logger and a set of MOW equipment (speeder, idler/flat and crane) needed to be pulled and reset on the YPRHS siding. Once the track switches were re-aligned, WATCO Switching pushed the 45 Tonner into place for its new home. The remaining photos show members assembling for a group photo. Thanks for the photos, Bob.
L-R (ground) – Lane, Glen, Allan, Bill; (loco) Lloyd, Mark, James (in cab) Alan and Ralph. About 570 years of experience depicted. — with Lane Plotner, Mark Seibert, James Mckinley, Allan Preece and Ralph Grutzmacher.
Lloyd and Ralph push the speeder across street after it failed to move under its own power. Flangeways full of debris got in the way of good traction.
James is at the controls of the #6 car to push the MOW consist to the end of the active display track
James has the # 6 car backed on to the active main track so the MOW equipment can clear the siding and be positioned at teh far end of the display siding.
