Our friend Jeron Glander sends us pictures of another busy day at the Museum. Since I don't live out there, I would miss a lot if I didn't have trusty reporters helping out with the breaking news.
Jeron, Rich Schauer, Bob Olson, and Gerry Dettloff helped get our little blue friend on his way.
At the south end of the property, work is progressing rapidly on the car line extension.
But even more astounding:
Work has started on installing the double-track streetcar line, working west from the Central Avenue crossing. The street has to be excavated down to a stable layer of soil, on which the gravel roadbed can be compacted, followed by ties, rail, and pavement. As Jeron points out, the view of the current wye track gives a good idea of what it will look like in cross-section.
