Track work

June 08, 2023 9:12 PM | Jacob Goldberg (Administrator)

We've been hard at work ensuring everything at the museum is in tip-top shape. While the spotlight has been on the restoration of CA&E Car 458 which is entering service later this month, we also have been putting a lot of work into our track to help ensure a smooth and safe ride for all passengers.

Last Friday, our Assistant Roadmaster Patrick Storm was out conducting track work on the main line at Coleman, near where our tracks cross underneath the Canadian National (formerly Illinois Central) tracks. He made almost a dozen trips back and forth with Locomotive #5 and a home-made easy dumper track cart, delivering crushed concrete along the track to help prevent the erosion of the roadbed in that area.
