Glad to hear you had an enjoyable visit. Tracks are scheduled to be built across the bridge next fall. And a tentatiive opening of the Mountain in 2021 which will entail a ribbon cutting and dedication ceremony.

This passes over several repair locations, one of them being "The Pinch Point" where a section of the grade was washed away into the brook. A concrete block wall was built to replace what was missing. The new unballasted track is seen in the attached image at the pinch point, with #9 just leaving a stop at the end of ready track, Saturday afternoon, 4pm.I had fun helping out on Saturday. First time driving spikes. It's a lot more taxing than splitting firewood, I will tell you that
