Rerouting the miniature railway for the summer season!

Click on each image for a closer look!
As is obvious from the positioning of the Railway Children theatre within Roundhouse Park, TRHA must temporarily modify the route of our miniature railway for the duration of the theatrical season. To this end, a track diversion has been surveyed and marked out. The northern part of this diversion will have an interesting climb to add a little challenge for the steam loco drivers.
Over the last two days a small crew have built all our remaining spare rail into track panels which will be ready to install in the next week or so. On Tuesday of this week, work was also started on the southern portion of the diversion at the station deck. The westernmost platform track has been re-aligned to head west on a 50' radius curve across the concrete roadway.
Also shown here are the two track crossing gates safely stored beside the water tower.
