    Thats what I call on the wrong side of the tracks :laugh:

    The hoe is definatly paying off no way you could do that job clearing the brush away from the train tracks.

    Making some progress here. Made it further down the tracks, probably about 1/2-2/3 a mile from where the project started:

    Thanks for the PM Sean. In terms of the ROW work, I have another week of work at the moment for the current utility but after that I'm not seeing the months of work at one time that I was seeing last year. That's fine thought, because we're starting to get calls on the ads we placed in the local papers so I need some time to dedicate to those projects and estimating other projects. We're running lean, just like everyone else right now.

    Alright, here are the finished project pics.

    First two are looking back at the beginning from about 1/3 of the way down the tracks:

    Here we are at the beginning of the project looking down the tracks. A little bit different from when we first started where you couldn't even walk down the tracks or see the hillside:

    This is from about a 1/3 of the way down the tracks looking towards the end of the project:

    Wow, impressive pics. Do you quote by the hour or by the job on these ROW jobs?

    Here are the last 5 shots. All of these are from the end of the project that was overgrown with 20' tall trees. Looks a little bit different now:

    Here is the final shot looking back from the end of the project:

    Flairland- This project was hourly with a cap of 5 days of work (we told the utility that we could get it done in 5 days so we had to make sure it worked out that way). Other projects are lump sum but it depends on the project.

    So uh, have any of the rail lines found their way on to the back of your trailer yet, and possibly headed for the, I don't know,.......... scrap yard?
    I hear them rogue rail lines have feet of their own.
