Agenda: We mowed yet another kilometer of track between Cornățel and Hosman, after which we put our motor-draisine and its two carriages onto the track and set off to inspect the track. At the end of the 4km of operational track we cleared trees on a section of overgrown track. Forced by rain to return to Cornățel, we started taking out debris from inside and around the water tower. After the rain passed we cleared some more weeds from the main line in the station.

Extras: We thank Marian, Gigi, Dina and Iasmina for their effort to come all the way from Arad to help. As for guests, we were happy to be accompanied by two reporters of a young magazine, from which we eagerly await the article.

29 June 2013 - Hosman-Cornăţel sector maintenance - 5 participants

Agenda: We profit from the only rainless day in this period to get a feel on replacing sleepers. We aimed for a remote place near Hosman but on our way we had to stop and clear the vegetation which bloomed after all that rain. Thus our sleeper replacement changed into mowing weeds and cutting down trees and branches, but we did find a couple rotten sleepers on the spot and had our way with replacing them. We never reached the intended location, which got postponed for next time.

08 June 2013 - Agnita station maintenance, The water tower in Cornățel, Carriage shed - 4 participants

Agenda: Another Saturday, another volunteering activity on the SAR. This time we dismantled the loading ramp at Agnita, mowed some of the weeds, took measures for some strips of tin at the carriage shed and cut in two some standard gauge sleepers. We then carried the sleepers to Cornățel, preparing for a larger action of sleeper replacement, and put back some tiles which were displaced or taken down by storm on the water tower roof. In other words, Radu, Cătălin and Mihai checked each just over 12 hours of work on the SAR today!
