Engine House Construction August 1, 2009

The Morgan crane received its first coat of Caterpillar yellow today. This color is a bit more pleasing than the bright canary yellow which the crane previously wore. Also, the temporary shelter which had covered the cylinders for the past three years was taken down, making this the first time that the assembled engine could be seen unobstructed.

Engine House Construction July 20, 2009

The four footers for the south piers of the enginehouse were poured on July 20. Each 6' x 6' x 12" pad was poured with 5,000 psi cocnrete and reinforced with rebar. The concrete piers will rest upon these pads.
