Construction Update #58

WOW! What a day! Working with our four man professional track crew, we completed tracks 42 and 43. Track 44's ties and plates were laid out, in preparation for spiking on Sunday. Concurrent with the track work, the granular for hte north parts pad was placed, trimmed and compacted. Track 41 was also ballasted, and the ballast pad was placed on Tracks 42 and 43 for the concrete apron. We are indebted to the Ottawa 696 group for all the assistance raking & packing the stone.

At the same time, installation of the switch stands continued, and the 44 switch was jacked and tamped. The pile of ties and rail is shrinking fast!
