  1. 2017, what a year!

    Well, the 2017 work season is now over, time to shift into winter service.
    It was a great year. Our crew went the entire year injury free (both serious and minor), we were highest out of the 3 tie crews in production, and I am very proud of my crew, BC LD tie 3. Worked behind a great production tamper operator. He tamped and I filled in, broomed, and trimmed over 120 miles of track over 4 subdivisions. Best day for tamping was just under 8,800 feet.
    Best work year yet for me.

  3. Oakridge Hobbies ....

    Anyone ever bought anything over the net from Oakridge Hobbies?

    I ordered a number (7) DPM Kits from them on the 26th of last month and, other than the confirmation email from them, have heard nothing more. They claim they send a shipping email when the order is shipped. IF that is so, it takes them longer than 5 full days to process and ship something?

    Just wondering if this is the norm for that mob or if it is an anomaly in my case.

  4. Anyone out there with a track planning software program that could make a drawing

    I have a plan I would like to use but I am not smart enough to figure out any good track planning software for a Mac. If interested in assisting and drawing my layout true with correct radius and everything else would compensate for your time.
