Turntable Update

Just a quick update from our Project Manager, Tom Falicon on the turntable in Bryson City!

Ties have been installed on the deck of the turntable bridge. The longer ties support walkways so the crews can walk past the engine while it is on the turntable.

Short ties have been cut and are being installed under the turntables ring rail.

A storm water control manhole assembly was installed in order to create a central location for all storm water to be pumped out to a newly excavated retention pond.

18 cu. yards of concrete was poured into a pit to create a solid base for our locomotive inspection pit to rest on.
