Work and Events / Northwest parking lot
« on: April 15, 2023, 02:13:31 PM »
Last year when the town was repaving Cross Rd. the railroad got around 50 truck loads of fill from cleaning out and reshaping the road ditches. An area was cut and stumped to stock pile the fill last year. This winter more of the parking area was cut off by volunteers. Last week our local excavation contractor Jeff Verney came in and cleared the rest of the area and spread out the fill. We used the bulldozer that Chesterfield and Associates loaned us while our dozer is down for repairs to spread fill and push the stumps out to the back of the property. We also cleaned up and moved all the stumps and softwood logs left over from putting in the other parking lots. A gravel surface will be spread over the lot after everything dries and settles sometime later this year.

Supervision is never far away.

The supervisor traded in his green chair for an orange tractor better to keep an eye on us.

Rocks being placed along the mainline embankment underneath the location of the new platform. The big rocks will hold rip rap on the slope to prevent the ballast from sliding down the slope.

Floor at the north end of the pit. The outside floor sections hinge up and the center sections are removable. The south end of the pit will receive the same setup.

Siding work is getting close to being done.

The old Sheepscot shelter was shipped to Top of the Mountain this afternoon.

Using the big forklift to lower the shelter down further on the flatcar. The shelter was left 8 inches higher on the car the day we craned the shelter onto the car to pull the lifting beams out from underneath.

Moving the cars from the end of the mainline into the yard to assemble the train.

Stopped before Brook Crossing to check the track level in the curve.

Coming through Sutters.

Cockeye curve.

Alna Center

Top of the Mountain

The station will sit just about where the open car is on the main.
