I absolutely recommend you shop project guys all wear hard hats , having been saved from severe head injury during C&TS Friends mandatory hardhat summer work in Chama.
During a rider boxcar remodel, a metal chair base was carelessly tossed out a window, knocking me down next to the car like a bowling pin. Damage: a hardhat gouge.

The form for the center support posts has been built and the sand for mixing the concrete will be delivered on Weds.  Zack hopes to pour the footer early on Saturday.  Today, as a safety measure hooks and ropes were installed across the north bay 2 & 3 doors to keep visitors out of the construction zone when the doors are open.

Some update pictures from Jason.

Steve removing the remains of one on the mudsills that use to run crosswise across the building. Footers are going to be poured in these locations before the new floor goes in to provide support for the posts in the shop wall. This is the wall between bay 4 and the machine shop.



After the mudsill remains are pulled out. The styrofoam under the mudsills is against the machine shop slab.



The center and end footers are in for the posts to hold up the steel ibeams.

We installed one of the center support posts today.  It holds no weight because the south post is not yet installed and the staging is still in place.  Stone that will be under the track in bay 3 was cut done to the correct grade today and the excess crushed rock put on the Woods Track.
