Last Work Session Oct. 26-28

Managing a large railroad is very work intensive. For those of you who enjoy the hobby we always appreciate it when our friends give us a hand. Please join us this coming weekend as we prepare the railroad for the winter. Lots to do so come on out, get a little exercise and help us batten down the hatches for the coming winter.

Clee Block revisions fully underway

After the fall blowdown, work began in earnest on the relocation of the mainline into Clee block. An enormous amount of work was completed this week. A large tree was felled, cut up and removed and the original line was removed, except across McCloy Lane, which will be removed in the spring when we replace the creek automobile crossing. We completed much of the grading and the forms were set for the new bridge. We also began laying the new mainline. We still need to cut out the roadway for the new rail crossing and then we will be able to pour concrete for the road crossing and the bridge abutments. Hopefully the weather holds!!

Fall Blowdown Oct. 11-14

Come join us next week for the final meet of the year. We expect a busy weekend with lots of equipment and a return of many of our friends. The forecasted temperatures are actually looking cooler, so come on out and enjoy the beautiful fall colors. I can see the evenings with the clouds of steam from the locomotives lying in the valley division. Don't miss out on this always enjoyable and fantastic event! .
