MRL Expanding Helena Yard

Yesterday afternoon at Carter St. east end of Helena Yard.
A WB grainer is waiting on the "Long Lead."



From the north side you can see both the grading for new tracks, and the the rather drastic shoofly that the train is draped around. Once the new tracks are added trains will no longer  have to be  parked on the Long Lead, and MRL will have double track to Helena East.

Getting a new turnout ready.



These next photos were taken from the Helena East end last month.

Jorma's Tuna Hiatus




When Hot Tuna broke up circa 1977, Jorma toured with his band Vital Parts, but also played solo. Notable for guitar freaks, Jorma was playing an Ovation and was temporarily addicted to using a phase pedal. Oh, and BTW, Jorma had also died his hair orange.
