Both caps are on the south side pile bent and the cross bracing is on. The cross bracing still needs to be bolted through the piles. We're waiting on our bolt order. The crew is going to drive the batter/ ice breaking pile for the south pile bent tomorrrow and then move the crane so work can start on the north piles.





View from the top.

The piles on the south bank were finished today and given an initial trim to height.



Pile caps coming off the truck. The long untreated timber is part of the temporary bridge assembly that will be used to roll the bridge across.

I'm posting these pictures for Bernie Perch.

Attached are photos of it in its original Lehigh Valley Coal 123 livery with Bob Kimmel of CNJ 113 fame in the cab who spearheaded the restoration, and a photo of it changed to Henry Clay #1 as it will be returned to the “Tunnel”.

Museum Discussion / New shop cranes, metal bandsaw and a boom truck.
« on: July 03, 2018, 12:55:14 AM »
Bud Davis delivered overhead crane rail last week to equip bays 1 and 3 with traveling gantry cranes like bay 2. The crane bridges are expected later this summer.



We found a good deal locally on a large Kalamazoo bandsaw for the shop Saturday and purchased the saw today.



The railroad obtained the use of a boom truck from Dave Allan. The truck will be put to immediate use on the mountain extension and bridge project.

Boxcar 309's repaired truck about to be rolled under the car. The top frame of the truck was bent down on the ends from the force of the brakes being applied and an archbar needed repair at one of the journal boxes. The top frame was bent back into place and reinforcement pieces were fitted on top of the truck frame. The WW&F had repaired this truck before on one corner before using the same method.

The contractor has also started work on filling in the slide at location 4 on the right of way down the mountain.

Excavator sitting on the right of way. The present end of track is about 50 ft behind the camera.



The slide area with new gravel going in place. The land slide area started right after the big pine tree on the left.
