On a very nice mid-November day, the museum’s heavy equipment crews went to work excavating and grading for the next extension of the new siding west of the Livonia, Avon & Lakeville Railroad which will hold the museum’s ex-Empire State Express cars.    This is in addition to all of the progress made earlier in the year.    First the area on the east side of the area was graded for a haul road and then the crews set out in the afternoon to grade for the next portion of the siding using the museum’s equipment and a rented Cat D4 dozer.    Here are some images of the progress.
