Mountain Division Extension Update – 02

Yesterday, may dad and I cut 59 – 16′ 2×4’s for ties. Today, I restarted drilling one track screw in 240 ties, and laid them out along the new extension rail to ease the construction process. Later, I completed about 25′, less the ballast. Thanks to @Henry Coleman, fellow member of WLS for helping me lay some track. Here are a few pics.

  1. This is looking real good. Maybe next summer I will have to fly to Rhode Island to see this railroad. I would love to ride behind Engineer Fr. Jay. Keep the posts on progress coming. I enjoy the construction updates.
