"A minor washout was fixed, and a culvert redone, minor things, but it's nice to see them doing stuff.  There are some other issues along that portion, but nothing that can't easily be repaired."

Hi Mike:

It's never too early to get our friendly rr prepped for TIGER 2015 http://www.dot.gov/tiger as they sure were not well prepared for 2014.  I've sent a not over to John W at Woodside Consulting but no reply.

Let's co-ordinate

Richard

Mike, it's Mike Davis

I am in no way trying to put a damper on your enthusiasm at all, but off this site people are starting to tease you about how you constantly post online about how exited you are that trains will get to redwood valley in 2015, we all know your exited and though a lot don't show it, I'm sure some are just as exited as you are. All i'm saying is that you can tone it down a little, before you annoy the heck out of everybody.

Have a good day, Mike Davis
