Volunteers worked Friday afternoon pouring concrete for the new track at the depot. Monday was spent removing stakes and bolt spacers. The forms were left in place and covered with plastic before the sun set. The forms will be moved west to complete the footings to the connection on the east side of the crossing. Conventional track will be laid at the East end to connect to the existing track. ... See MoreSee Less
