Thanks WM734 and others for you compliments. I am trying to do my part to get the word out about this great RR, that I had never even heard of this time last year.

With that shot just west of 48....I'm just amazed to see a well ballasted right of way...and tamped to boot!...lol.
 
Sorry, when I was working down there the best sections of track were the very short stretch under Kirkwood Highway that was redone by the state after they finished the work on the overpass, and the section from behind Brookmead to the Hercules trestle and later when they finished Faukland, from Faukland Road to Hercules....they were the only sections to have all new materials ...ties, ballast, rail..tamped (mostly by hand) etc.
 
These sections were good for 25mph or more...but still listed at 15mph of course.
 
 
I believe that O scale modle was built buy the same volunteer who designed the station... E. Urion.
 
I could be mistaken though on the model builder.

Keep your fingers crossed from the looks of the progress we may be up to 10A Mt. Cuba by next weeks trains.  
This shot is facing east twoards 8b Woodale. The grade crossing is done and the track work looks good.

The first Santa trains of the year today and the first passenger trains up to Mt. Cuba Rd. in three years. (114 made a track inspection trip earlier in the week and before the trains today.)

Something cars have not had to do for awhile, stop for a train at Route 48. Most had smiles.

The Spring Valley Road crossing had just as many people along with flags and Banners. Many were in their yards for both trips waving.
 
58 arrives at Mt. Cuba Rd.
