Radiating the Radials!

Click on each picture for a closer look!
In the above left picture, we find the patio paving contractors hard at work organizing the complex task of laying the patio stones between the radial tracks.
This past week, PNR Railworks has also been continuing to lay the tracks radiating out from the turntable into Roundhouse Park. In the other pictures above, we see the current state of the tracklaying effort.
At this weekend's Doors Open event on Saturday and Sunday, visitors will have the opportunity to ride our new passengar car for a trip from Bremner Avenue down one of these radial tracks to the turntable and then experience the operation of the turntable as we rotate the speeder and the passenger car for a return trip to Bremner Avenue.
