French drain complete… With good weather and the right equipment, the Rochester & Genesee Valley Railroad Museum was able to complete the installation of a 300 foot french drain that will aid in the removal of surface water after the track is installed to the museum’s restoration building. This view is looking north with the building behind the photographer with the drain shown on the left in the image.
Looking back… Looking south toward the restoration building, the french drain can be seen paralleling Track 6.
Almost at grade… With the drain complete, finish grading was started and nearly finished. From this stake, only about 10 inches needs to removed from this position to reach finish grade at which point sub-ballast and track can be installed.
