Start time for tomorrow (Fri)? My Son is coming up for the weekend.
Usually the first "work train" of the day departs by 8am or so. But there are plenty of projects going on. In short, please come when you can - we'll find something for you and your son to do.

Workers arrive through out the day during the weekend, and there are trains to shuttle the not so early risers to the work site, or there are lots of other projects in the yard area to be completed.

Great work!  Roughly how far is the end-of-track from the first washout?

About 50 feet or so.

When Operation Washout #1 Fill starts, will  the track be extended closer?

No track can be constructed until more grading is done to the washout, and it gets filled in. Depending on how things go, the plan is to have the hole filled in by fall, and lay rail next spring. However that is subject to change.

Actually, rail will be laid up to the washout temporarily, to allow the use of Ichabod to set the culverts in place. Once culvert is in, rails will be moved back to allow for grading if needed.
