Progress Report 08.16.10

Crews took Sunday as a day of rest after a hard push last week.  Tonight crews resumed work.  The yard ladder was laid, but after further review from management, it was decided that modifications were required.  The yard ladder was pulled up, a small section of track was added, and the yard ladder was relaid.  In the process a long section of glued subroadbed had to be sacrificed (pulled up) due to the modification.  It was somewhat extreme for such a small modification, but if management is not happy, nobody is happy!  Crews are blaming Foreman Timmy for the trouble.  He has been accused of sniffing  glue when laying the yard ladder originally.  Foreman A.T. has resumed responsibility of completing Davenport Yard. 

Construction crews completed the metal grain elevator in Stockdale this evening.


  1. Yeah, too many foremen on the job is a recipe for disaster, just like too many cooks spoil the broth. It sounds like Foreman Timmy may need some assistance to deal with his substance abuse problem. I definitely wouldn't trust him with power tools any time soon.

  2. Foreman Timmy has been placed on administrative leave for the time being.
