Are they working from end to end, or moving the work around the line?I would assume that they would start at 359.19 in Lakeville (just north of Conesus Lake Junction) and run north from there as they have done with the tie replacement phase.

To just where the CWR ends or the whole line up to GJ?Because no ties have been marked as far as I can see south of Bailey Road, I would assume hey will only work to where the markings end (also where the welded rail will end.) While there are other ties that may need to be replaced further north, I think this is something that LA&L will do through Western Track Works (an LA&L subsidiary.) Also, towards the end of the line here, the speed rarely exceeds 15 miles per hour because of the reverse curve and the fact that it is near the end of the line.
