There are always many projects in our shop, and more on the drawing board.
ROTARY SNOW PLOW
This winter was very hard on our railroad with the deep snow. We now have a rotary snow plow under construction. It will have a 40" wheel and be able to clear the train from snow 48" deep. 8-23-10 Rick & Pete started the frame. Roatry Wheel & Housing are now ready to install.
NEW CASTLE ENTRANCE
The entrance to our tunnel has seen better days. We decided this year to replace it with a new one. All steel frame work and concrete bases will make a much stronger entrance. Again this year the tunnel will be constructed of sheet plastic, but hope to replace it with a new perm enclosed structure in the coming years. This was completed in October 2009 and repainted.
New cement footings were added to the castle entrance. It is now bloted in place on 3' square cement footings.
New lights were added to the castle entrance.
Halloween and Holiday Lights are coming up soon so there will be things to do to prepare for these events.
