2016 Construction & Stuff

 

Joe Fox and I built this 3 way switch for the new west end yard lead.

We decided that the Garden had to go to make room for the yard expansion.

Bob Dewatcher came over to help out.

 

Another switch done for the yard

The Yard is taking shape

Joe installs Joint Bars to the By-Pass track. The 3 way switch looks pretty neat and works well.

Here we are replacing the inside main curve and crossing. Having problems with the summer heat moving the track.

Joe finishes up assembling the track before battasting.

Tamping the new crossing

New Water stand between yard tracks 1 & 2 to keep watering off the mainline once the yard is complete.

The end of the day Jeremy assembled most of the rolling stock into one train.

I think there were 24 cars.
