Thanks for the photo Skyline. In your shot as well as the one taken by Shibbergish, there appear to be two extra tender cars (yellow) behind the black one attached to the engine. I assume these cars make up for the scarcity of functional water tanks along the route?

It also looks like there might be a conventional engine (#2551) between the tenders and passenger cars???

The diesel helper is to reduce the pulling load on 4014, as well as to give it some braking power. It is also there to protect the schedule if 4014 should break down. In the photo above, the yellow sign to the left of 4014 is the "speed limit"; top one "P" is for Passenger trains, and the bottom one "F" is for Freight.

Yes, they are additional water tenders.

Thanks for the info IDK! So it sounds like 2N13 isn't passable between Fawnskin and GV is that right?

IDK-nothin
Jun 06 : 06:37am
We took a moto to Butler last Saturday. Gates were closed in both directions and the base. The road was not passable by Jeep due to storm damage. Deep wash outs of the road. Gates closed from Green Valley and at least two very large trees across the road between GV and Butler. So, unless someone did some work this week, your only options to Butler are foot, horse or bike.
(oh, and chicken, course. If you have em, ride em)

Yeah I believe I've heard Keller signing off for the day.

Thanks Benny! Butler would be great to see (by far my favorite!) We're in BBC and are planning-on taking 2N13 around to Green Valley Lake so if Butler isn't open we may try for Keller on the way back to BBC

I know quite a few are Kev, which one you headed to? Not sure if Butler is, but I've heard a couple others reporting in.

Does anyone know if any of the Fire Look-out's are going to be open on 6/6?

Only 1? Fantastic news. Quite surprised that's the first case in nearly a month, after the 4th of July holiday weekend, or what felt like it. Slow rate of spread, the remaining 9 have since recovered and resumed normal activity.
