 Brendan, thanks for the photos of the pile driver at work on the new passenger platform, interesting to know the process of installing the pile.

Really impressive work! Having the platform further north will be nice for simplifying the run-around move. Does shorten the overall trip, however ::)

We're planning a northward extension of the platform at Trout Brook to compensate for this.

Was totally unaware of the apring/ice house under the platform.  Is it still functional?

Bob, if you're talking about the small building at the north end of the pilings, that's the house for the pump to the water tower.  It still is functional.

Thanks Ed. I was very concerned about this.
