🚂 Track Work Results for Summer/Fall 2022 🚂
The 2022 work sessions were very productive thanks to our many
volunteers. The big track work goal this year was a major realignment of the track just south of the
depot. The track and switch originally laid in 2015 needed to be realigned in order to accurately rebuild
the yard tracks. This resulted in taking up most of the summer and thus little
new track was laid.
Now that this is complete we look forward to a lot of new track being laid in 2023. Also, this year
we completed two new switches connecting tracks 10 and 11 and 10 and 5 (where boxcar 8027 is located).
A lot of roundhouse improvements were completed, including restoring (and IMPROVING) the roundhouse
bathroom which will be greatly appreciated by the locomotive crew working through the winter. Also,
the restoration work on C&S gondola 4319 was completed and work has progressed on C&S boxcar 8311.
