Well we have been slow posting this up. We broke ground over 3 weeks ago on our new shop track.

With our NEW machine shop/ repair shop it just would not be complete without a track serving it. We had constructed the track with 60 lb rail DUAL GAUGE 36" & 42". We left plenty of room for future expansion for additional gauges.

Special thanks to the construction crew:
Pete J. , Dozer operator, Backhoe operator
Ron J. , track materials
Mike S., track construction & spiker operator
Mike J., track construction & job supervisor
