It'll be interesting to see if the line is extended into the new proposed industrial park North and East of the
current facility.

Is the flock of geese still in the area in front of the office?

Was there many years ago and when driving in, they were all honking, and followed my car to the office. Great security.

The folks there were very friendly and even gave me a ball cap.

Good memories

Nice photos, how many units do they have now? It seems like I’ve seen two different units out towards the airport. But I haven’t been able to get photos yet.

SW10 is another unit. Thought they had a SW1200 inside as well but couldn’t confirm.
No geese the two days we went by.

At one point some years ago they were running with a GP35 but that I believe was a lease unit.
