A slow week or two

"It's been a quiet week in Lake Wobegon ..."

This is how Garrison Keillor has begun his monologue about the fictional Minnesota town each week on the A Prairie Home Companion radio show.

You can say the same thing about the engine house at the El Dorado Western Railway. With our normal cadre of six to eight volunteers cut to one or two, slowed progress a bit.

Unseasonably cold weather and rain, along with out-of-town volunteers (myself included), has hindered work over the past two weeks.

As the weather warms, work will pick up on the Diamond and Caldor No. 4 and Railbus No. 10.
