That is really cool! For the first time one can get a good idea of it's size. It's a lot bigger than I thought.

EVERYTHING's easy for the guy who doesn't have to do it.

About 3 weeks ago, the last load of rail was moved to the train's new location. This year has been spent pulling the remaining track out of the woods, unbolting it to single pieces, and stacking it to haul. No further construction work has been done this year. The other thing that has been happening every once in a while is a friend dropping off a load of ties he has scrounged from somewhere.
