Chronicles of an On30 quarry railroad

On30 Railroad That Shrinks - 4

Demolition continues in the train room


Skeletal remains of Piedmont ready for the scrap pile

Without the Piedmont or Winwood sections, traffic volume on the remaining layout will be reduced, which in turn will reduce the need for siding tracks.



The rails are pulled from the Scale Track. This long siding came in very handy over the years when Shops Yard became congested.



Lifted turnouts are piling up, as are the pulled track spikes in the square container.



Ties are scraped off the Homasote roadbed. The Scale Track is history.
