(includes photos from May track work)

(posted 6/8/21)
The FRRS retained an outside contractor to do extensive track work on the balloon track from the sewer crossing to the interchange switch. Inspection showed more than 300 ties needed to be replaced, along with several sections of the outside rail. The work has been completed. There are photos of the work in the Around the Museum 2021 Gallery and a video of the first run on the refurbished track on the WPRM Gallery page.

The Historical/Archives Department released a major new resource, H/A Collections. This is a set of new web pages that have put several of our H/A Collections online and has some search capability. Explore it here: H/A Collections
