Enginehouse Components Delivered

The photos shows a truckload of columns for the new Tod enginehouse building being delivered. Much of the building has been delivered, with a couple of truckloads remaining to be hauled from West Middlesex to the Heritage Park.

Our architect indicates that we may be able to apply for a partial building permit by the end of the week. The partial permit would cover the building footers and allow us to finally begin construction of the enginehouse.

Tod Engine Finally Reassembled!

On July 1, 2008 the crankshaft and flywheel of our Tod Engine was reassembled. The engine had been disassembled since 1997, and now with it back together construction can start on our engine house building. Two cranes were needed to assemble the pieces. Over the next week we will attach many more of the smaller parts of the engine.
