Looks Great, but where's the Pit Floor Drain ?  Or is it hidden by the foundation wall.

Yes, the drain is hidden by the wall - it is just outside of the visible floor space in the bottom right of the pit.

In the third photo down, the guy with the red shirt bent forward is the approximate location of the sump hole. There is also a green pipe that comes in through the exterior wall which is just above the pit sump hole.

In this photo that Stewart posted to the NGDF forum the sump is visible:


There is a guy in a red shirt bending over in the left upper corner of the pit, and the black wall of the sump is visible in front of where his feet would be, along with a portion of the green horizontal drain pipe.

As noted elsewhere, lumber has arrived to start framing the engine house.  Here James Patten and Brendan Barry are sorting the lumber Saturday morning, September 4th.


The sorted lumber was then stacked by the engine house foundation.  The engine house floor is expected to be poured soon, along with the turntable pivot foundation (form in the right foreground).


I-beams have also arrived, to be cut up and used as vertical supports for the pit track rails.


Bryce Weeks (right) and Dan Malkowski busy cutting the I-beams to length.

If you look at the first post, first page in this thread, you’ll see a floor plan which explains the placement of the two outer tracks.

Thanks,
Jason

Ah ha, got it: the track is parallel to the outer wall just like the pit track! thanks, K.

The roundhouse floor was poured yesterday morning. The concrete crew arrived at 5:30 am and the first mixer arrived at 6am.

Of course it looks great.  Our chief foreman Fred was clearly on the job to make sure it turned out great.  Thanks Fred!
