The RDC repairs are complete with the exception of A/C.  A second opinion on the compressor confirms it must be replaced.  This will require new drive pulleys in addition to the compressor.  The cost with labor is $11,001.09.  Andy Cobaugh moves to authorize additional spending above previous allocations for this project to pay this cost, seconded by Steve Dillon; the motion carried.  The contractor has installed all new wiring between the control stand and the traction control system due to several identified faults.

No report on the caboose or snow plow.

A work party will be organized for June 3 in Lemont.  This work will prepare the track for Strawberry Festival speeder rides.
