While the original Edaville was very good, there are a few things that I can think of that would have added to the railroad flavor of the railroad.
The spur off the track in the "woods" was a trailing point switch and really should have been left in. It would add interest and mystique to the RR. Where did the spur go? The same thing goes with the spur into the sandpit, trailing point, and would have added interest.
As far as I could tell vandalism wasn't a big problem down there, otherwise they would have lost Peacedale and the other displays. Thus, it may have been possible to leave a freight car on the sandpit spur. Further adding interest.
I believe I saw on one map one last little spur, this time over on the west side between a couple of bogs. Would be nice to have left that in.
In order to add interest, it wouldn't have been a bad idea to have a track that would have created the small loop that is in use now. Something to add interest and provide a short loop for times when it may be appropriate. And, of course, one more thing to run on Railfans weekend.
It was disappointing to see the removal of the track going into the museum where the Rangely was. It was either removed, destroyed or buried, it wasn't passable when I was down there a few years before the place closed.
There also used to be a track that went up to the south or south west side of the screen house. Would have been nice to have that left in or rebuilt. It was significant in that it would have allowed Atwood to transport the berries directly to the screen house by rail.
An additional water tower up at the ball field wouldn't have been the worst thing in the world. If it actually worked, so much the better.
It's too bad they didn't build an engine house around the turntable. I imagine that if Blount had not been killed, they probably would have.
A coal tipple or authentic looking building for loading coal would have been nice as well.
I think that I would have put in a track that deviated from the mainline before the pine grove and ran along the outside of the overflow lot as well as the regular lot, it would have had to curve back in and rejoin the mainline somewhere before the Eda Ave south crossing.
It would have added interest, would have been something fun to use on Railfans weekend and it would have added interest to the railroad.
It would have been interesting to look at exactly what property Atwood owned to see what trackage could be added.
