Mid-week report #2: The new portal in action!

Click on each image for a closer look!

In our TRHA News posting about last weekend's activities, we said:

"While other TRHA volunteers tended to a host of maintenance tasks on the miniature railway, several of our volunteers also moved the two 4,800 lb (each) sandstone "wheel sets" (i.e. 19th century wooden wheel assembly jigs) to a new location away from their somewhat remote location in the west corner of the property. They now form a portal of sorts to the miniature train platform."

In the attached photos, we see these sandstone wheels in place as a portal as one returns to the Don Station on a trip around the miniature railway. In the third photo, we find one of our student volunteers drilling clips to be used on our re-decking of our flat car.
