Re: Alcalde & Coalfield High Line

Hello Jack, The railroad and landscaping look great. You are quite the artist and craftsman. I will have see it in person. I think it may be a little like going to Disneyland. Will we need E tickets to ride the high line ? Keep up the good and hard work.

When boiler p...
