In the words of a favorite Gospel song..... "It Is Finished!" The last of the yard trackage is done. My part in the history of this track has run it's course. I wish the owner many happy hours of trouble free steaming.
 
Here is the last batch of photo's I took today.
 
First shot of the finished yard

As a fitting end to this saga, the Owner held a small "golden spike" ceremony today, and the BCRR crew was well represented. The first photo has Bob Deans Northern nose to nose with George Johnson's 0-4-0. After a short speech the two locomotives locked couplers. The fun soon started when they started a tug of war. It was a bit one sided.

The yard area was pretty busy, even for such a small gathering.

It is inevitable with any new track, we had some last minute tweaking to do.  
 
Looks like a government job: 2 workers and 4 supervisors.

My camera battery died shortly after this next set of photo's so most I have is from the same spot by the trestle. The trestle, while being fully functional, still has the temporary bracing on the bents.  
 
First up Bob and his Northern.
