To follow on from Jeff, the KCRR used the bucket and crane arrangement to unload coal from barges on the river into the coal shed.  Just an interesting side note...

To avoid any confusion, loading coal from schooners and barges, and loading coal into the locomotives, were two different structures.

Took some photos today, but I just walked into the house after a 3-hour drive home, so posting will happen tomorrow.  Plus I'm still thawing out from James' trains today.

So, what does a conductor do on the train, when there are no paying passengers?

The KCRR had a much smaller version of what the B&SR had.

Fred said that the coal was frozen in the dump bed of the truck. I bet that it took a while to get it out.

I see a frog and switch stand waiting for more trackwork (still including a single-point derail?) with two, long, switch stand ties set.



Paul,

In an earlier post, it was mentioned that a derail position would be incorporated into the stub switches that would be installed.

The gantry has certainly sped up the process of laying rail. Will the stub switches be installed shortly, or is that up to Brian?
