After a discussion yesterday, we believe the run through track won't need to be removed in its entirety to pour the roundhouse foundation.  

Remove ties and ballast, leave the rails. Add metal tie bars, mud rails, foundation forms, pour.  Same as shop extension. 

See ya

The long weekend threw off my calendar.  I'm late for the anticipated work for this weekend!

* Turntable (there's still things to do)
* Boxcar 67
* Top of Mountain

Dozer and excavator work at TOM should wrap up this weekend, and then the trip south on a flat car. Now that we have the turntable, 126 can be turned so the brake wheel will not bother loading.
Unloading at Sheepscot may involve the little trailer, used as a ramp.

Then a little grading can be done around the turn table, hoping next weekend, to clean up the piles from the hand grading, and enhance the swayle to keep water away from the turn table

Is the Woods Track now extended enough for equipment transfer?

Yes, the woods track is now extended into the parking lot.

Woods track still needs ballast and tamping.

Switch points would be nice, too.

Also not sure for the reasoning but there are some spots that are only safety spiked. If memory serves correctly I think I counted around 20-25 ties still needing to get spiked.

Jason...sounds like the affected roundhouse rails will be prepped to become part of the building's floor slab work, similar to a light rail street install, will eliminate rail r&r.

To Wayne's post I would add... guard rails... they would also provide an increased safety factor.

I liked the way Jason had me build the TOM mill siding switch.  The first step was to put in the main line guard rail.  The second step was the points.  the last step prior to the switch being operational was the siding guard rail.

Joe,   Are you talking about the woods track?  I am not sure there were that many ties without spikes but we were trying to conserve spikes for the turntable leads as we were getting short on them.

Since we didn't get to it during the work weekend, how many people might be available to lay the first 150 feet of the mill track on 10/22?

Yea, there are some spot on the woods track unspiked, but I heard it is due to a few kinks which makes sense because those few spots looked rather sharp.

I may be available on 10/22. Let me see what I can arrange

Barring a last minute work interruption, I plan to be at the museum on October 22nd.
