Mid-Week Report: Busy-ness Prevails During the Week - Part 1 of 2

Click on each image for a closer look!
Even during the week, there is activity above and beyond the work being done by contractors.
On Wednesday, a small team of TRHA volunteers had a great day today working on the miniature railway depot tracks in the sunshine as seen in the pictures above. A full day of precision work on the tracks joining the depot to the turntable resulted in some serious progress on completing this connection. As well, applying shovels to the mud resulted in our properly completing the laying of the siding along the north side wall of the depot. The siding is now complete with ballast, is reasonably level and has a flower bed ready for plants between the track and the wall.
In the pictures below, we find the City of Toronto’s project team for Roundhouse Park meeting with members of the Board of TRHA and with Tom Murison who is restoring Don Station and Cabin D as we finalize details for the completion of these structures in time for the opening of the first phase of the museum on Doors Open weekend in late May. Subsequent to this meeting, the City folks and TRHA worked through planning for the opening event.
Finally, in the last image, we find that as of last Tuesday, a test pattern was playing on the Roundhouse Park signage suggests that soon we will be able to make announcements to the public passing by on Bremner Boulevard.
