Today Robb and I visited White Creek for the first time of the year. I started out at the shop talking with the guys, there was about 10 people total. Then I went out with Russ and we did some track maintenance... I removed sticks from the sidings while he and another guy fixed some low spots, twists, and other issues with the track. Robb meanwhile was running his Clishay. He made it about 2000 feet before loosing a bolt. Then Robb and I went out with the electrics, my SBT and his boxcab. The SBT made it about two miles before running out of juice, pulling the clishay riding car which has friction bearings that are not well greased. Robb then double headed and helped me back to the station, where we loaded it all back up into his van and jumped his van and waited for my passkey to reset before going home.

I continued the installing of the ductwork.
Next is to make the shelves that go along the short wall of the shop. I started tonight by installing bracing in the ceiling for one hanging shelf that will be two white boxes tall.

Tonight I continued with the dust collection pipes. The pipe is done, I need to make some gates and a box for the chop saw. I may do the other direction first.
I also wonder if the first three outlets are too close together.
I used the old railroad shelf brackets and two by fours as support brackets.

I also have been avoiding dust as I have been seeing a Dr about my sinus issues. I had two weeks of antibiotics, and tuesday a CT scan.... 1.5 hours of waiting for a 2 minute scan... and 350 dollars out of my pocket. I keep hearing deviated septum, small passageways, post nasal drip...
I told Nancy my plan is for two pieces each night. I think that includes brackets. Tomorrow I need to separate that wye on the left hand side of the picture from its pipe... if the last one was any indication... it will take a while. I also need to install brackets to hold the next few pieces.
