Bob, Butch and George pre building the ladder for the first section of the Railroad.

This shot shows the 4x4s for the first loop. They are 2 feet above the ground and 2 feet in the ground. We poured some dry cement in the holes and added a little water. Here the guys are using a jig to add the rung pieces to one side of a section of ladder roadbed.
The first 10 feet of the railroad is complete and we pose a train on it. If you look closely, the opening into the depot is not yet cut out.
