I had a slow start this summer due to family health issues, but I’m finally back out on the track. A few weeks ago, I began blowing off the track and yesterday was ready to put an engine out there. But due to the harsh winter, my turntable was a real mess. So yesterday, I got out there, removed the rail, ripped off the old decking and began putting on new decking. I’m grateful for a find several years ago at Groseman’s before they became “Bargain Outlets.” They used to have the greatest lumber yard and hardware stores. When I was a kid we always went to the one on River St. in Woonsocket. Now it’s nothing be a memory. But back to the project. I purchased a load of the old style composite decking that was being sold for nearly nothing. Wish I would have got more. Anyway, here are some pics of the project. Tomorrow, I’ll get the rail back on and be ready for steaming.
Wish I had this stuff when I first built the turntable!
