I don't have a Lat/Lon of the current end-of-track since the main line was extended after I took my last GPS reading. On the Spring Work Weekend I'll try to remember to bring a GPS. I have a new one that my employer manufactures that is accurate to less than 1 meter. (A regular handheld GPS is only accurate to around 5-10 meters.)

I hate (not really) to be picky but you missed the shipping container -
or is it under the word balloon "Garage"? if it is close "Yes" will be accepted :)

Yes. Under the garage word balloon is the relative location of the shipping container.

When I drew that map a few years ago, the layout of the woods track had not been finalized, and there were no plans to acquire a storage container.

When the container is painted dark green to match the woods beyond and is harder to see, the correct response should then be..."container? What container?"  ;D

Here is a (fairly) clear map of the WW&F Mountain Extension:




To clarify:
The Mountain Extension is broken up into seven "Sections." These sections match zones that require specific permitting. Some Sections require no permits, others (such as Sections 3 and 6) are more complex and require the cooperation and approval of several agencies.

There are 17 specific "Locations" that require work. Some Sections contain several Locations, others Sections consist of only one Location. As of October 2017, all ROW work at Section 1 (Locations 1, 2, & 3) is complete; the end of track is Location 1. For the record, the coordinates of the End of Track are: 044.097636o N x 069.623382o W.

Major contour lines are at 10' intervals, minor ones (dotted) are at 2'. This really makes the flat land at Top of the Mountain for our future mills really stand out. (Contour lines are omitted outside of the work zone.) The "Top of the Mountain" dot indicates the location of the former cart road crossing.

In a word, "WOW!" We are indeed fortunate to have a mapping professional in our group. ;D

I echo John's comments.  Now all the discussions back and forth as to where, when, and work scope become very clear.  My compliments Ed.
