    There is activity. I can hear the wistle. I still haven't been able to get up there to check it out though.

    On a different note: We are in the middle of one of the weirdest summers I have seen in my 9 years up here. It has rained almost every day this month. And I don't mean those short afternoon burst like we usually get. There have been several days when it rained all day. It is very unusual. If I hear one more person say, "We can use the moisture," I'll slap him silly.

    I don't know what all this moisture is going to due to the track on the Loop. Hopefully nothing. But when a lot of water is mixed with sandy desert type soil, bad things can happen. Especially when that soil is on a 45 deg. incline.

    The rain is also one of the reasons I haven't been up there. Because of all the rain, I found a leak in my roof that was causing some serious damage to my cedar siding. I have been working on getting that taken care of before winter. I think I sometimes take for granted that it is so close.

    We rode the train on Labor Day

    C&S #9 did the down hill duties alone but Diesel #21 assisted on the way back up. They had a very full loads all day on Monday which is good news for the Loop as well as Georgetown.

    :thumbs_up: :thumbs_up: :thumbs_up: :thumbs_up: ​

    #21

    When I rode in one of the open cars in the snow/sleet last Friday, I was impressed with how they've tuned #21's exhaust note. In the snow/sleet conditions, pulling back uphill to Silver Plume, unless you were in the car immediately behind #21 and you were specifically listening for #21, it didn't distract from the chuff of #9 working the grade. Well done! :thumbs_up:
