Redding is GONE! Actually, "temporary Redding" is more accurate. Now we can begin building the permanent Redding town and yard area.
Here you see the emptiest the yards have ever been! Virtually every piece of rolling stock and every loco is parked safely in Valley and Richmond Staging yards. Now we can begin construction on the upper level without worrying about damaging equipment underneath. This will be especially important during the construction of our unique suspension technique to support the upper level turnback loop above the lower level roundhouse area.
Valley Staging packed to the limit. All track are packed except half of the programming track, which is the empty staging track along the aisle.
Well, that's it for this update. Thanks for checking out the progress!
