Museum Discussion / Crossing 218

I have no idea if this has any value to the WW&F but maybe?

They have a rubber railroad crossing for sale. If 218 or Cross road were to be crossed at the museum's expense or if there were value in a rubber crossing elsewhere on campus, this is a cheap albait standard gague one.

Museum Discussion / Track Layout at Alna Center
« on: May 27, 2015, 07:43:33 PM »
There are plans to restore the top of the mountain track layout after the railhead reaches 218. This causes me to wonder what the original layout of Alna Center was. If it was originally a passing siding, why? Was there enough traffic to justify the siding or was the siding for spotting cars and if so, what regular freight load at Alna Center would warrant spotting a car? If Alna Center was originally a single track affair, is there a plan to single track the current WW&FRy? There has been mention of a sawmill or similar display at the location but I believe that it was mentioned that the land was not available. Was timber still being served by spurrs off the WW&FRy in the time frame the museum is attempting to portray?
