With the floor protected and the windows moved above the sky it was time to start construction …. But WAIT. Construction was put on hold when the key personnel of the AT&SG Railroad were asked to return to Hawaii for a second time to help with distance education at Brigham Young University – Hawaii. The president did manage to include a box of structures and a minimum set of tools in the shipment of household goods to Hawaii. But alas, no time and the box sat in the closet unopened for the duration of the tour.
The tour of duty was scheduled for 23 months starting in January 2008. However some serious health problems required a return to Utah after only 10 months. Perhaps construction could resume on the railroad.
