We still needed some improvements to the trailer to enable safer transportation and
better docking at the railroad.  Here are a couple of modifications that helped.
Here is the ransition panel we built to fit between the back of the trailer and the
docking station track.  Think of it as a ferryboat slip.
Trailer is now situated.  The lawn tractor makes it much easier to maneuver
the trailer for a good fit at the dock.  Notice the wood block to hold up the
trailer.
View from the lawn tractor.
Locomotive is ready to move off the trailer.
Once the fuel tank was installed, we could use this bracket to slip around
the ends of the tank.  Loose bolts are a convenient way to keep the bracket
in place.
