Module Updates

Track crews have been doing their maintenance work on the Green Line right close to Ruins.

Here's a update on the two corners: Track improvements are finished and ballasted and now have red to orange and orange to red on each corner. Some poorly done track work has been repaired.

I arrived at Joe's 7:15 AM and we proceeded to test the Gray Rock's Orange and Red lines including the Frog Juicer. As soon as we hit it with track power...short!

The orange line improvements on Gray Rock  are now complete. Work involved installing two turnouts from the Red line crossing over to the Orange line. These two manual turnouts are finger operated. The flexibility this will give us is tremendous!
