With the recent increase in rail traffic, the PCR construction and maintenance crew has been putting in the overtime. Slim McCready could be seen out with the company pickup, working the rails, from daybreak until sunset.

Work has been centered around Dunnington near Die Craft Manufacturing and the Thompson Farm House, and includes new ballast, rail and tie inspection, and the clearing of vegetation.

In other news, the old Pennsy NW1 proved to be a good addition to the PCR roster. The NW1 is assigned to Slickville, Dunnington, and White Valley, freeing up a NW2 that was paired up with the other NW2 in Export.

Word has it that Guss Grump was actually seen with a slight smile on his face. When asked for his comment, he replied that the PCR will stay ahead of any demand.

This month's operating session is this Friday, November 17th, starting around 7:00pm. Hope to see you there.
