For the second weekend in a row, the Rochester & Genesee Valley Railroad Museum continued its excavation north of its Restoration Building to bring the ground in front of the building to the level of the building. Unlike Week #1 where the museum had the donated use of a hydraulic excavator, this day the museum used only equipment from its own Historic Construction Equipment collection.
The museum’s Cat D7 waits for the pan to return to give it a push with the museum’s yard crane working in the back moving rail parts out of the way of the excavation.
