Just wood and water was all that was needed.


Got Cog?

This one needs 15% to keep the water level.

Kawidual,
I've worked for railroads for the past twelve years, always in the south. Those blowers amaze me, I'd love to see one work someday. I routinely deal with 1-2% grades and those are a big deal, I can't imagine how big of grades there are in the real mountains.
