2023 will be a radically new year for us with operation finally getting to Riegelsville. This page has not been updated in a while due to other concerns getting us to this point. The page layout will now be presented in a somewhat different manner to show what work is in progress. Please bear with us as we build the new page

                                       2018 saw the construction of our new shop building. There are two tracks inside and one outside the building.  The building project is not quite over as it still lacks all utilities. Track 3 outside the building is partially done. Eventually, it will be extended past the south end to connect with tracks 1 and 2 at that end. Photo above shows 142 being delivered in 2019 to start the overhaul. Track 2 was not installed yet at that time.
