Building the Long Radial Track!

Click on each picture for a closer look!
The longest radial track in Roundhouse Park will stretch from the turntable to the north-east corner of Roundhouse Park. In the picture at the upper left, we find an excavator working on the excavation of the roadbed for this radial track. In the middle photo, we find workers manually excavating the roadbed beside Cabin D. Manual labour works well here as the surface layer of earth in the park sits on large styrofoam blocks in order to control the weight on the parking garage which lies below much of the park. In the final picture, we see the view from the south-east corner of the park which shows the track alignment passing just south of Cabin D.
Restoration work on Cabin D has been deferred due to concerns about the roadbed work adversely affecting a partially disassembled building. Once the roadbed is complete, work will begin on restoration of Cabin D.
The pictures below capture the rapid progress as the track laying began today.
