Trips to Schuyler

An amazing thing was happening. It would occasionally occur to me as I drove up to the Visitor Center to talk to the construction foreman.


The long drive along the James River from Richmond to Schuyler is one of my favorite road trips.


The soapstone industry is my favorite subject for historical research and industrial archaeology.


Model railroading is my favorite pastime.


And it was all coming together at the Quarry Gardens.


Interior framing for a shop area, classroom, office and entryway was going up.


Included in the framing was the benchwork for an O scale model railroad display that was to feature historic scenes in the local area. If I had not seen it with my own eyes I would not have believed it.
