It will be quite impressive to see that long-distance tender restored and transformed into the tender for the T-1. The pieces are coming together.

Thanks for posting update. I took a couple things from the newsletter. First, it looks like they are getting close to starting the frame and it looks like they are trying to keep it a coal burner with the acquisition of a stoker.

I always look forward to their presentation at the PRRT&HS meeting in May. That is where you get the annual updates and plans. So far they seem way ahead of their initial schedule. I hope they keep momentum. I am not getting any younger.
