Years ago I was collecting lumber scraps to lay some track.  Some of it was CCF treated and some not.  I cut it all to tie size and loaded it on a pallet, then enclosed it with chicken wire.  Then took the load to a wood treating plant. (Boy, was that pallet HEAVY when they loaded it back on my trailer!
Later the ties were used to help a fellow live-steamer extend his home track.  Since some of the ties had been "double-treated", they ought to last a while!

Hey Dan,  
I would say that the doubled treated wood be very good stuff indeed.
 
BTW did you ever get the complete owners manual for your mill? If not, I finally got all the missing pages and I can copy them for you.

Bobby,
 I think I have most of it. I'll try to remember to bring what I have to the unmeet and we can compare.

Peter and Julia hosted a little Christmas Lunch today. Although it is the middle of winter with record snow and cold covering the country. But we braved the inclement weather and made the best of it. Here is Mario shoveling off the right of way, and he forgot his gloves.

Sorry to our northern friends, but yeah, I'm gloating. Today was picture perfect. This is Florida style winter live steaming.

If you look on the last photo you see Gianni sitting behind Mario running the engine. Just 2 times around the track and this is how Gianni finished the ride.

Keeping in line with the last two pictures bobby posted...  
Both Bobby and I were out working together on some little projects here and there, the winter wood workers busy in the wood shop, and Gianni out and about getting into everything he can on the railroad.  The guys took a break to go inside and sit down for some lunch.  The project both bobby and were working on had consumed us…so when we were finally ready to take a break we realized it was way too quite out on the railroad...we had last spotted Gianni out on his ride-on Thomas Engine...after a bit of investigating...this is what was found!!!

He went round and round…  
These only represent a fraction of the time he went around!  
 
I couldn’t help but laugh and align switches to point him in the right direction…he finally woke up headed back into Nancy Station after the dogs began barking at someone passing down the street.  If not for that, who knows how many more laps he would have made?  And believe us…he made many once we noticed him!

This time of year is the Florida equivalent of winter. Meaning we usually hide inside to avoid the extreme heat. But today a couple of us braved the sun to play.

It was announced on Chaski BBS that Pete passed away very recently.  I was shocked to hear it.  What's up Bobby T?

Tom, It is a sad truth. Our beloved Peter passed away suddenly this past Sunday after a brief illness. Everyone at the BCRR are assisting the family during this sad time.
