The Coal Dock

I've been away for a while, but here's a pic of the coal dock just about finished. There are still some final details to add, loose coal and odd assorted junk.

Round to Delta

Last night Steve and I finished the ballasting and installed all the ground throws for Delta.

Here we have differed from the original plan by shortening the peninsula by a foot to give a little more elbow room and added an additional siding for an engine shed. We also moved the divider over a couple of inches away from the Forfar side.

Some pics of the rock cut and fill

This one is taken on top of the rockfill heading north toward the cut. When you think of the amount of labour that went into here, without the aid of modern machinery, it's quite amazing. All this rock came out of the cut.

This one is as you approach the cut. It's been filling up gradually with falling rocks and trees. It's visible on google maps satellite view.

This is looking at the west side.

This one is the east side.

It's a good walk for the dog. She knows her way around all the little paths up there. In season there's wild blackberries too!
