New storage facilities for the miniature railway!

We are out growing the storage available in our Miniature Railway Depot so we are adding a storage facility right beside the current building.  We will be using a commercial 40" diameter culvert to house some of our passenger cars with a track inside it. In the pictures below,  we see the handiwork of a few of our staff and volunteers who moved seemingly endless wheelbarrows of stone which was laid upon geo-textile cloth to prepare a bed for this storage unit.

To wrap the up the day, a new cooling system hose was fitted to our #7020 diesel switcher (also shown below). The rubber adapter from 4-1/2" to 5" required at one end of the hose had to come from Seattle. We now plan  to re-fill the cooling system, apply 8 psi working pressure and check for leaks.
