So we are still trying to catch up posting a few of our projects.

This a piece of special track work we purchased from an ex-Atlas powder mill in Joplin, Missouri. The cross over is 3ft gauge 40 lb rail.

We actually purchased one and a half semi loads of equipment from this location more pictures to follow within the next few days.

Very unique piece of track work we look forward to installing this.

We are lucky the one is put together & READY TO GO the other needs assembly. . . we really need switches so thats why we will utilize the (4) remaining frogs for that project.
