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).
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?
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
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.
