  • Plainfield FPD has a new St.2 and Admin campus under construction on 135th St. just east of Rt.59, behind the Menards.¬† They also have 2 new rigs at St.2. ¬†(Not a good place for rig photos right now with all the construction going on.)
  • Naperville’s new E-4 is still at the dealer for prep work but hopefully we will get it next week.
  • Earlier this month Naperville shuffled some rigs around again.¬† I will let you know … where everything ends up.

Editors note: We can hardly wait to rearrange the apparatus that we have posted throughout the 10 Naperville stations!
