Rail Exhibits Display Track Takes Shape!

At the rear of the YSHP I am putting in about 90 feet of track which will become the new home of our new rail exhibits. The 80 ton Treadwell hot metal car and one of the EEC GE 70 ton locomotives will be displayed here. The above photos show the topsoil scraped off and the other photo taken this morning shortly after a load of slag was delivered. I was about to smooth out the slag however just as I was about to do so a hydraulic line on our Allis Chalmers front end loader blew out. Fortunately the hydraulic oil shot away from machine or I would have become one well lubricated machine operator!
