Something A Little Different..

     I haven't had much time to work on Port Hood since my last post, but all the track is pretty much ballasted. So since I don't really have much to share, I thought I'd post a few pictures today.

A dozen empty hoppers sit in the storage tracks at Port hood. The Co-Op elevator is in the background.


Inverness 2-8-0 #1873 (ex CN 1873) rests on the main next to Port Hood Station.

Ballast just about done, and ground foam being applied.


Finally, some green.

More ground foam being applied.



     I still have to mount my caboose industries ground throws to the switches, but that will have to wait for a little while. The one thing I did manage to do this week was add a telegraph bracket under the eaves of Port Hood Station, and a Call Box on the end of the platform for crews to use. Now I just have to string some cable to the box.
