Doesn't the West station need redstone still?  That's an underwater job.  I've done one of those and really don't want to do another.  It's twice the work.  I think Bob should do it!  He's clearly an expert underwater builder. : )


I have some experience in underwater work (and a r3aa helmet to boot). I'll swing by W on my next end grinder run and investigate.

Great news that West is done.  Are there any other stations left that still need the redstone put in?

i put the only two tasks identified in the first post.  maybe we are closer to being done than I thought.  I might take the long ride to do a survey to see if anything else remains undone. - i'm updating the list at the top of the thread as I ride around...

Wow, when did Fort Knox get downsized???  I'm curious why it was felt to be worth the effort to remove the chests.  I stopped in and picked up some things for finishing the ENE-FNE line and was really surprised.

NNW Station - needs some love.  Practically no minecarts here.  The access to redstone was almost impossible to find.  I stocked it up with carts and put some signs pointing to redstone access.  You shouldn't have to hunt around a station for 5 min to find how to get to the redstone.  no wonder the cart dispensers were empty.

 

Ditto - FN Station, very neglected.  No minecarts.  restocked.

NNE Station - quite challenging to find the redstone access.  I left some signs to guide the way, and the way out.

WNW-FNW - install track lighting -   Done, crudely and economically but done.

 

I also cut back some trees that were accessible, perhaps someone who lives in that corner could do some too?

 

I have a few GS and the SB I didn't use, I will return these on my next centrral trip.

 

 

 

GT -Yea, Fort Knox.. you didn't hear about Microsoft's new Chest Tax?

I didn't expect the chest tax for at least another year.  Maybe Ray needed them for his new game.

There was some in Knox and I have 2 stacks to return. If someone takes on the longest bridge supports more may be needed.

Chests create lag apparently.  It's never affected me but for some it seems to.

I had a thought.  Instead of having to get underneath to the redstone to refill dispensors, I took out a stairs block and replaced with a half slab.  This allows you to be able to click on the top dispensor to fill it.

 

I did North and Far North.  I tested it.  It seemed to work but see how it goes it you use them.  I added a few carts to Far North.

Easy Fill Cart dispensers
