Further Development of Roundhouse Park Steadily Continues!

Click on each picture for a closer look!
While our focus has shifted somewhat from museum development to operating the museum on weekends, our TRHA volunteers continue to further refine and develop Roundhouse Park. In the pictures above, the roundhouse's compressor tanks have been repositioned with one being beside Leon's loading dock and the other at the end of the ramp from the back door of stall 15 leading to the road. These tanks were part of the air supply system for the Roundhouse and were connected to two large massive air compressors which remain in the machine shop awaiting restoration. In their new locations, the tanks will be interpreted as artefacts as well as acting as sign posts.
In the pictures below, we find a before (left) and after (middle) picture of one of our miniature railway crossings. The crossing was reworked to deal with the problem of loose bricks obstructing the track and also to realign the sharp curve at that point to a more easliy negotiated radius. At the lower right we find a TRHA volunteer testing the wiring on our crossing gate system after its being replaced after the G20 Summit.
