🚂 Track Work Results for Summer/Fall 2018 🚂

Thanks to the hard work and enthusiasm of the track crew, progress was made as shown in the slideshow gallery below.

The first five pictures are from the week of 3 June to 10 June. They show overruns on tracks 2 and 5 from the roundhouse, along with new track into stall 6. We also extended the track west of the depot by 60 feet and the Gunnison main by 200 feet. Also there is a picture of C&S gondola 4319 which we got from Central City under a 10 year lease. We will restore the car and keep it in the roundhouse.
