On Saturday, July 24, Dwight Maxey, David Hunter, Tyler Seeley and Paul Brown got some track work done. Our main goal was to remove dirt and rock from on top of a stretch of ties in the sharp curve leading to the shop area, and to install some gauge rods in the curve. Most of the morning was spent by all four volunteers removing the dirt and rocks to allow a better visible assessment of the track structure. After a short lunch break, the crew spent time installing the gauge rods on the track and cleaning up the edges of the track “right of way”. This is part of an ongoing project to make the track through this sharp curve more secure for operation.
I have included a few pictures to better describe the work completed.
