Hmm. To sail or to railroad. Now there's a conundrum!

Maybe I'll go railroading and save sailing for when I can't go far from the office;)

Took my Mallet to the Botanical for the day. On the fairly steep grade, it ran about 2 1/2 hours per charge.

The dallee sound system started acting up and it was real hot in the boiler where it's mounted. Maybe if I was to adjust my regulator down a few v. I have it at 14.4 now.

About 7:00 some cars derailed in a tunnel and the engine yanked hard enough to break my brass & JB weld drawbar and unplug the connectors. Dave had a pretty little diesel he was wanting to try out, so we put that on. Won't take long to repair the drawabar, and now I know a weak spot, I'll improve it.

Then the weather looked threatening, so I packed up my engine. It rained at closing time while we were putting trains away, but then cleared off and was beautiful.

Rained pretty heavy this morning already.
