More progress in Como

Todd Hackett
We got about four more lengths of rail on each side in place and gauge spiked. There is still more spiking needed on these, and some leveling, but it's getting closer to the turntable (still 9 or 10 lengths away).





We also started fixing up the turnout:

  You know, those scrappers went to a lot of effort to rip all that stuff
out in 1938.  And now you are messing it all up !

1:1 scale is the best.

Thanks for the update and photos Todd. You all are doing an amazing job and are to be commended. Wish I had time to come help. Hard to believe it's already been 24 years since we drove that first spike up at Alpine huh?

That was a fun trip, brother D. I believe it was the first "Passport in time" event with Mr Rossman. How far we have come since then.

Glad to see the progress! Couldn't make it out last Sunday due to work. Seems like the weather is improving, a few Saturdays back it was rather variable.

Love all these photos, gives me a feel for the place and something to match my scenery to.  We could almost make up a backdrop for a layout from them also. Love all that progress, will have somewhere to run the loco when it arrives. Paul R

Haven't been here for awhile. Been too busy taking care of my wife. Just thought I'd take a Lookie-see. I just am amazed of the progress! Keep at it.

Seems we might have work going on over 4 days this weekend, Saturday is the main day.

We also have a Train Order Board to attach to the Depot.

Tomorrow is the 138th anniversary of the first Train at Lechners, the Station was named Como and the name was used by the new tented city.

The Depot was first mentioned the following month, can find no mention of its construction. Was the Depot ready for the arrival of the first Train, probably will never know.

  We had it all explained to us last year ...  the Como depot was an old D&RG
building, teleported through magical means to Como from Denver.  Don't you
people write this stuff down ?

I thought he said it was originally from Texas.

Progress continues. We got a lot of track built in June, and finished spiking it on Sunday, along with some leveling and kink reduction. This video illustrates the progress better than a still photo seems to.be able to. I appologize for the quality, but all I had with me to record this was my cell phone. To save time, most of it has been sped up 2.5X.

Great to see some of the mainline going in as well!

I'm headed across the pond day after tomorrow.  Is there still a work party on the 15th?

Cheers,
Jeff.

Looks go great. Keep posting pictures. I am wondering when 'Klondike Kate' is going to take up residence in Como. Inquiring minds want to know....Just can't wait until convention....
