Thursday was another fantastic work night. The Sue Line work crew did a fantastic job.

Signal cables were for the R-R CirKits system were installed in Sue City, Robert's Crossing and Leming. This job was again spearheaded by the team of Ken Ellison and Rob Brannon and by Dave Colvin and Rodney Dixon. As you can see from the photo above they really get into their work.

The power team headed by Rob Robins (back right- dark shirt) and Jim Willis (back left-red and white shirt)has completed the installation of ZoneMasters from CVP Products up thru Robinson. Charles Kneipp (front right-white shirt) continued with the installation of Tortoise Switch Machines. Whie Paul Harwell (front left- fall down) assisted and sometime inhibited the progress.

With Charles Kneipp (Back )in the way completing the final check of the new switch machine in Underworld (the hidden yard), the rewiring of underworld was begun by Danny Garland (middle)and Jason Busy (front). Again you can see that they really dive into their work.

All in all a fantastic amount of work was completed. We now await additional parts for the signal system which are "in transit" from Dick and Karen Bronson at R-R CirKits and Al Lautenslager "Mr. I can do" at CVP Products assures me that additional Zone Masters, Power Supplies and Radio transmitters and Receiver will be shipped as soon as they are available.

The continuing work of Mose Crews in check out and "debuggin" the wiring cannot be overlooked. Mose has continued his fight to fing jumpers where connected wrong and other errors such as turnouts that do not work and "bad track" . Without his work we could not continue. Mose Crews is "Mr. Quality Control" and it is not complete until approved by Mose.

In all fairness, it should be noted that Richard Kamm, was again found to be doing nothing constructive or helpful the entire night. It was discovered that several things which were not working properly, had been wire backwards under his direction. In fact it looks as it he might be fired from the construction crew.

Due to travel plans by Sue Kamm, which would have required Richard Kamm to be out of town, no work session was planned. Her plans changed, but too late to schedule a work session.
