Well it was good to meet you sort of.  Keep enjoying the railroad and make comments.  I like to look at them when I have time.  I don't know when I will get to ride again but I do plan to at some point.  For now we are home in Willits, doing security for the willits Yard and planning our Summer, hopefully we will get to go out on the tracks in our car somewhere.

GGRM update from Steve Coons on FB

 

GGRM update: We are getting close to a move date, need to leak test 1 car get a single car test done on all cars and finish the annual insp on SP 2472 started on 6 may. The good thing is we have 5 yrs left on the boiler time on 2472 before she's due a form 4 teardown. When all this work is done ( during for 2472 ) we can then call the FRA and the UP to come and inspect our equipment, if it all passes there checks then its just a mater of arranging a move date with the UP. Stay tuned…
