This week Brad
Matthews Construction and RBC/R&L Towing were out at the
Railsplitter Covered Wagon doing repairs caused by recent wind
damage. After the wagon toppled over a few years ago it was
repositioned to help withstand strong winds better, and that has
worked out pretty well. Matthews explained that the the high-speed
winds that passed through Logan County earlier this summer did do
some damage. The winds caused the wagon to shift a bit, putting
stress on one of the wagon's wheels and causing a broken spoke.
Matthews crew tackled the repair with help from tow truck owner Bob
Gaston, who donated his equipment and time for the project.
