Work train conductor Frank Armstrong running plow car spreading ballast.
If you look at the photograph I sent
last year spreading ballast you`ll see we were using a tie under the car.
Myself and Ted Ashbridge designed the plow car for doing that job. Ted
and a few of our carmen built the car and it was a big improvement over
the tie. I would like to recognize two of the carmen who were most instrumental
in the development of this improvement for the work train. They are Wayland
Ferriera and John Darnielle. I thank them all because their efforts made
my job much easier (6/17/98).
