Mountain Division Extension update – 03

Today I made more headway. I managed to complete another 40′ and also one rail on another 40′. So tomorrow, I can finish what was begun and go on. Here are a few pics.

This is 40′ with only one rail.

When I first started laying track. I was able to borrow a rail punch. Wish I had it now. This is my drill template.

Every tie has four screws. One on each side of the rail. The red bar is my rail gauge.
