The R&GVRRM hopes to be able to complete the excavation soon to allow for track construction to start. We welcome new hands to help construct the siding and welcome donations to offset the cost of the tons of ballast and other materials we will need to construct the track.
The construction crews of the R&GVRRM have continued the excavation for the second phase of new siding west of the LA&L. Along with the D7E, the museum has put its cable Cat D8 to work as well. In this YouTube video, the two dozers work together toward the end of a Tuesday work session as they clean up the last of the dirt to move that day and backblade the excavation site to smooth it out.
