-throttles: we have received back the two that we sent back before the show. One more is set to go out; there were two that were broken however, but I have no idea which throttle the second one is, as they all appear to be working fine.
I plan on sending the one that needs repair back shortly, so that we can hopefully find the other throttle that is having issues and send that one back as well.
-Scudderville bridge: Road is mostly complete on this, I just need some sort of jersey barriers for the side of the road. The bridge itself is almost complete, I was just about to add in the top struts that are at either end of the bridge(I.E. what the train would normally pass under). Once that is done, I can paint and install. On that note, we had put one end of the bridge on the other pier for the show, does anybody know what happened to this pier? I have the two side pieces, but not what it was resting on(Otto, did you move it?)
-R&IT power: 7426 is having issues(it will not move at all). As far as I know, everything else works fine though. I would like to go paint another MP15, but I'm going to wait on that for a while I think. 7428/30, the two club Alcos, as I stated previously, just don't have the R&IT logo on the back of the engine. It should
, however, be a simple matter of removing the grab irons and then decaling the back of the engine. Asides from that, they just need numberboards and a little touch-up on the paint.
