Welcome to the to our newest member Jeff. Some of our members ran on the mainline for a while. No problems were encountered so once the feeders are added to the the sidings to Allen Lumber and Gay Lea Foods, ballasting on the new track can begin.
A few of us added supports and adjusted the grade up to Ortona, most of it is about 1.8 to 2.3 degrees, not bad for a branchline. It looks like the stream will flow down where the bottles of screws are. The climb up to the logging spur is only about 2 1/2 inches.
