Weekend Report - Many Hands, Many Tasks
Click on each picture for a closer look!
We had a great end to the week with the west
loop of miniature track being completed except for final line-up and levelling and insertion of the new wooden flangeway fillers. We are now waiting on Pine Valley to finish the east loop roadbed before we can finish that off too. Switch construction is coming along really well so once we have usable concrete road all the way from the machine shop (expected to happen by Wednesday this week) we can begin to think about how to shift the assembled switches from the machine shop across the park.
In the picture at the above left, we find our weekend volunteers moving sections of rail in the Roundhouse. In the middle and right hand picture, we find our folks working on one of the crossovers where the miniature railway track crosses one of the the standard gauge radial tracks. In the left hand picture below, we find a volunteer cleaning the threads on some bolts prior to their use. In the final two pictures at the middle and right below, a TRHA crew reinstalls the bumper posts now that some of the radial tracks have been shortened a bit.
