Museum Milestones for April, May, and June 2020
Car Barn Extension: The extension construction picked up again at the end of March, and was largely completed (except for the big doors) by the end of May.
Mountain Extension: As restrictions began to loosen up, crews began ballasting the Mountain on Saturdays, which was to have occurred during the canceled Spring Work Weekend. Approximately two-thirds of the unballasted track south of the bridge was ballasted.
Locomotive 11: During the stay-at-home orders, a working group met online each week to chart the course of the locomotive’s construction. Materials were ordered, taking advantage of the reduced price of steel.
