Progress Report: 2017.06.17

Progress as of June 17, 2017.

We’re making excellent track progress in the Norristown area and the green line near the extreme end of the loop.  Progress is being made as we install new switch machines, staining rail ties, and laying down new ballast along the green line.  We also reached one of our goals as a locomotive has traveled under it’s own power from the the staging are to the endow of the loop and back again.  There were a few kinks and glitches along the way, but that’s all part of model railroading.

The bench work crew continue to build framing for Pottstown and Phoenixville to the Royersford/ Spring City at the end of that leg.

Outside the building, the construction of the new vestibule outside door has started.

To get a better understanding of our construction and track laying progress, please refer to our track plan diagram [here].
