Saturday Nov. 12 Tim, Phil C. and new member Tom Downing leveled the ground for the new container and trackage. On Sunday Tim and Phil C. built and inserted a new switch into the far South yard track to branch it into the new container with 2 new tracks.
Pressure treated 2x4s were used instead of plastic ties for the switch construction and track. A second switch will need to be fabricated and remaining track put down to lead to the container. The project is coming along well and should be completed by the following weekend.
Volunteers are welcome to help lay the new sections of track, shovel ballast and all that fun stuff.
