Still considering whether I have an interest in Southern Pacific in HO scale.

We took the week off for Mother's Day activities. However, as a windfall, we obtained a good deal of mountain material from the packing material of a new entertainment center. This may help resolve transition issues to the proosed bridge.

This weekend our staff was hired as consultants to design and build a rail line in the nearby town of Patio. Ava Operating Company acquired Brio track and trains. Our challenge was to use all available equipment and inventory to create two independent loops of track and a trolly line in a space approximately 1 scale acre in size. The equipment is a little less than half size of O. The scale area is about 4 acres.

The solution was a two-level operation. This required construction of additional piers. A photo of the prototype will be attached to this post in the next few days. The prototype has been disasembled to improve the property.

Operations were interupted again last night. All personel were involved in an emergency project in the nearby town of Pool. The Lake of Pool developed a significant algae bloom. Scientists determined that the lake had abnormally high concentrations of minerals and salts. The lake had to be drained and refilled with fresh water. Equipment was available for only 12 hours so the project went until 1:30 AM. Original projections for refilling was 4 days. However, by using two water sources and maximizing the available water sources, this was shortened to 12 hours. Filling was interupted at the 9th hour to permit other uses of the available water pressure.

Pool Lake is now sparklig and ready for a summer of recreation. We are expecting full enjoyment by all the assistant engineers and their families.
