#25 brought up our flat with the Jennies (yes two Generators as we got a used one from Jack's Cousin).  The red one is the old one.  An electric chain saw is much quieter and the jennie is a ways off so it doesn't add much noise.

No trains were out and about today but the tree at Clear Lake is cut up and ready to be split into firewood pieces.
 
A funny note on our big saw.  It has been hard to start and hasn't been used much as of late because of it.  The big tree limb needed it so Jack got it to start but it was missing and running poorly again.  He happened to see the spark plug wire vibrating a lot so shut it off and opened up the saw to have a look.  The plug fell out, well at least half of it.  It was broken!  A new plug and it ran like a new one!  Trees BEWARE!

No, just more leaves down as the picture is the next day after the replacement.  I got the back pack blower out the next day and cleaned off from the small TT at the east end of line to Kat Jct before I got to tired.  Jack says more Oak are still coming down!

Finally had a chance to fire up #7 and test the air compressor.  It was a success.    Spent the day
playing with her and plowing snow. First up is on the TT.

More snow hit Battle Creek so #7 was used to push the plow again. She worked good!

Readying the plow.  #25 was out to assist if she lost her footing.  #25 stalled East of Jacks Pit and couldn't help me push up the grade East of the trestle where the curve and ice stalled me.  We backed to Phelps and put her away after 25 was fixed. A fun New Years Eve day!

Back on the Sandy Ridge again and was called out for an extra light to Woodshill to move a flatcar.  Here I am stopped at the switch for the branch.
