August, 23 2008 Update

I'm back, so are the updates.

June 8th was our turntable dedication. Here is the 25 ton on the table being spun for the crowd.

The crowd listening to the dedication cermony.

The rail bus gets a spin at the dedication.

The 25 ton locomotive resting comfortably in its new home, round house pit six.

After the rush to get everything ready for the dedication we spent some time cleaning house. Here is a pile of ties that have been sorted.

Pit 3 being prepared for rail.

The completed pit 3. Only two pits left!!.

Trees have been removed from the areas between the turntable and the ash pit. Track will be installed here sometime this fall.

the Track Mobile has been fixed and is ready to resume its responsibilities.

The CV 4052 caboose has been put in pit 5 for the restoration. Now that it's covered, work will progress more rapidly.

Since the caboose has been put in the roundhouse, the roof has been removed.
