This is called Christmas Entertainment.  Note the proliferation of booms.  One even belongs on a dragline.

Now that the bucket is inside it time to do some fixing.  It will definetly take a few rods to make up for all the wear and tear.

Today we moved my big bucket home for some maintenance.  It looks much bigger on this small loader than when it's hanging on the 88B.

These rolls have just had a lot of new steel put on them and are itching to get back to work

We stopped at what are called the Spiral Tunnels.  In the first picture which is a model to illustrate the real thing you can see a train just comming out of the tunnel while the back end is just ready to dissappear into the tunnel.  In the real picture both openings are visible but one is hard to see.

When we needed to find complicated places or watch where we were in the grand scheme of things we used our computer.  Mostly it worked fairly well except we did get to see some pretty small streets in Vancouver.

We stopped for a break at beautiful Mt. Robson.  The scenery was impressive.

After grinding all the valves the head is ready to install.  The head bolts almost look like a forest.  It sure seems like there should be enough.

We were on our way to a wedding and stopped in at St. Leon for a look at some windmills.  They look impressive in size when you get up close.

We had supper at the forks and went for a walk over the river.  We had a nice view of St. B from the west side of the river.

I guess you could call this a project day.  Gravel is kind of abrasive and maintenance can get to be quite a job and two guys welding helps to speed up the work.  It sometimes seems like a never ending project.
