Construction Update #59

Sunday was another great day. Tracks 44 and 46 were completed, once again with the assistance of our professional crew. They will return in a month to complete track 45 and the balance of the yard once the concrete work is done. The north parts pad was completed, and track 46 was ballasted, and the south parts pad was graded, packed, and topped uo with crusher run. Ballast and crushed limestone were also placed on the concrete apron area at the east end of track 46, and between tracks 43 and 44.
Work on lifting, lining and tamping the switches continued, and the connecting rod and stand were installed on the #7 switch and the #46 switch.

All in all it was a great weekend, and we accomplished everything we set out to. Thanks to everyone for their hard work. The next step is to pour the concrete walkway and parts slab, as well as the concrete apron on the east end of the building. The light at the end of the tunnel for this project has officially been turned on!
