 It's been a busy fall so this is the first chance to get back at the railroad for our fourth work bee on the benchwork.   Robert Peck and Kevin Lougheed were joined by Grant Ledrew as we got all the portals cut into the walls and built the first peninsula for the Abercrombie Spur.

The legs for the peninsula.  It took us quite some time to get the peninsula solid enough.  There are still a few things to do, but it pretty good on just three legs.


The peninsula with the two portals from staging on the left.  The mainline will climb to the level of the top portal which is about 12 inches above the lower one.
