Cutting Ties for the Miniature Railway!

Click on each picture for a closer look!
The miniature railway planned for Roundhouse Park will require many wooden ties once we assemble the track. On Saturday, a nine-man TRHA team set up two workstations and in three hours cut over 1,700 new ties.
The picture at the left shows the work area at the halfway point. In the middle picture, we find Ron, Wilson and Lance (left to right) operate a cutting station. Eight foot long landscaping "mini ties" were cut down to nineteen inch long "even more mini" ties for the railway. In the picture at right, Arno, Michael G. and Mike S. take a short break and discuss what is next.
