From the photographer’s notes – "I went to the end of the present Gold Line to get some pictures before the final connection was made to the new section. I was surprised to see the rail was all connected, ballast tamped and leveled. All of the Overhead support poles are in and cross arms were that very day being installed. By the time you receive these pictures the wire may have been strung. Note they have installed a Pocket Track just East of the Platform.

I was very fortunate to have an escorted tour of the new Yard and Shops now under construction in Monrovia. It is huge and very impressive. The yard will hold 85 rail cars. They will do heavy repairs with pits. There is a 15 Ton overhead crane. This is bigger than most. There will be a car wash and a large Stores Dept. Body and Paint Shops. I may have missed a couple. It is really fitting together very fast."

12 Tools Every Carpenter Needs


Putting together a comprehensive set of carpentry tools can be a lifetime’s work. With each new job you tackle you find you could do with just that one extra tool. As your abilities as a carpenter grows you take on more challenges and of course they require…more tools.
But if you’re just starting out and you want to gather together a few essentials that will come in useful for most carpentry projects.

#1Tool Belt

For ease of use when actually working on a project, you can’t beat a tool belt. Buy one that will accommodate the tools you use most often. Models to which you can add extra pouches for more specialised tools extend flexibility.

Hammer
Bashing away at things is part of the fun of carpentry — don’t deny yourself. If you intend to do heavy work you’ll need the grunt of a 20 oz. framing hammer. I prefer the framing hammer by Estwing.

Tape Measure
Without some way to measure out your projects you might as well not even start. Tape measures aren’t expensive. You want the retractable metal sort. I prefer a 25′ to 30″ carpenters tape by Stanley tools.

Squares
If a carpentry project isn’t true and square it will probably be impossible to complete. And if you do get it finished, it’ll almost certainly fall not reflect well on your character. Two types of square invaluable in the squaring process are a large L-shaped carpenter square and a smaller, triangular speed square. I recommend you purchase both.

Spirit Levels
For any sort of construction work you’ll need a spirit level. The larger the scale of the project, the larger the level needed. A small torpedo model will suit most needs around the home. For larger framing tasks I recommend a 4 ft level.

Utility Knife
Otherwise known as a Stanley knife, this tool has a thousand uses, from cutting drywall to trimming pencils. Keep one in your toolkit and make sure you have extra blades stored inside the utility knife.

Marking Tools
You’ll need a carpenter’s pencil to mark your cuts and layout.

Saw
Carpentry without a saw? Impossible, unless you work only putting together IKEA furniture. You could buy a crosscut saw to cut against the grain, a rip saw to cut along the grain and a panel saw for finer work. But for a basic tool kit, just go with a universal saw. I recommend a Stanley Fat Max carpenters saw.

Screwdrivers
I recommend a basic combination screwdriver. Home depot sells a nice unit by Buck.
