I think the plan is for the generator to stay where it is. As far as grading, it is done for now. There is talk of using the material hauled in by the state as topsoil, and seed it over.

There are actually plans to move the generator, pending a campus wide electrical distribution overhaul.  Ultimately we want the generator hidden and to minimize modern looking incursions in the entire area.

Mike's grading looks nice in the pictures.  Can't wait to see it in person.

See ya
Jason

Thoughts for the future roundhouse, could we hide the generator behind it, and or put the electrical room in the small tool room that was built off to the side of the roundhouse?

I think someone once told me the roundhouse annex was to be a blacksmith shop.

So way cool!!  And so seemingly ordinary.  Great to involve visitors in the action...almost as good as a cab ride.
