The ballasting job I refered to earlier was the recovery and replacement of the shoulder ballast on about 1 mile of track on the south shoulder. Over the years the railroad was abandoned, there was heavy atv usage and this caused much erosion of the shoulder ballast. All together, we put out about 300 yards of ballast. We also lined and surfaced about a half a mile of track near Washington Junction and half way between Ellsworth and Washington Junction.
When you mention "recovery" are you indicating that you pickup ballast on the sides of the track and poured it over the tracks again or did the DSRX buy new ballast and insert/dump that on the tracks?
