The R&GVRRM’s Track Department has been busy working on the ballasting and leveling of the new siding west of the LA&L. Here is a panoramic image of the siding with the R&GVRRM’s ex-New York Central Pullman PS-4 flatcar #506102 sitting over a freshly ballasted portion of the siding that extends to the left and right of the image. To the right, the siding will be extended further south toward the R&GVRRM. To the left, the already installed siding still needs to be ballasted and leveled.
To continue to make more progress on the ballasting, tamping and leveling, we still need your help by making a donation toward out Donate-A-Ton fundraiser. Please consider donating $20 which allows the museum to buy a ton of stone or consider donating the money for several tons. To date, 50 of the 300 tons of ballast we need has been donated so far! Thanks to all who have donated.
