Time for stone! With grading complete, it was time to spread some 100+ tons of railroad ballast to provide a stable base on which to build the yard trackage. Here we see the start of the work.
More stone! The R&GV Railroad Museum’s ex-Army 6×6 dump trucks go to work delivering stone to the work site.
New timber! To make this project take place, some additional new railroad ties and timber had to be purchased. Here we see the delivery truck waiting to unload at the R&GVRRM. Each new 6″x8″x8′ tie is $32.00! Can you help us by adopting one or more of these new ties? Please consider a donation to our “Building Tracks to the Future” capital campaign.
More new timber… Down in Industry yard, the switch project rebuild is continuing nicely with some of the new timber laid out for the switch.
