Got some railfanning of the CSX Hanover Sub today while I'm working the night shift this week.  Here's D795-11 leaving Gettysburg at the famous Railroad Cut.

So I've been lacking on progress updates lately, but that's because I've been busy in the basement.  We'll head east from Hanover towards Gettysburg. 

First up coming out of the yet to be built helix, you'll cross Elm St (just over right shoulder) and come into Elm St Siding.  Just around the bend is Kindig Lane and home to the Utz Potato Chip factory.  Around the next bend is Radio Rd and the end of the passing/storage siding and leads into the quarry and "New" siding, where D797 drops empty hoppers from their pick up at AgCom to head back west.




Around the bends is the Vulcan wye, leading into the quarry, the main line and "New" siding.  The curve isn't as tight as photo shows, different shot from the camera.


Next shows the UL for this side, with AgCom, DalTile and Morton Buildings in far distance (yellow centerbeam).  Further back you can see the Vulcan quarry.


AgCom is just long enough that I can unload the first car


And using the tail track, the last car on each siding.


And I got the first level of the helix started. 


Still need to lay the approaches to the helix but that will wait until I get that built to see where the most comfortable angles to come in will be.  I have it drawn on paper but we all know how that goes.

Roughed in the yard at Vulcan Quarry this evening.  Lots of work to do here, including scratchbuilding the stone loadout to go with the lime loadout I built.  ( I smell an Industrial building challenge Part 2 )  And lots of conveyors.  And lots and lots of stone piles

And since I'm doing the plumbing in my house all I see is the sanitary tee in a non code position (unless it's a vent line). Anyway at second look the quarry yard Is looking good. The finished scene is going to look awesome.

Apparently it passed Pennsylvania code in 1994 when the house was built and again inspection when we bought house in 2007.  :?

This fun bullshit started tonight.  Anyone for a nut screwing party ?



And yes, I put that line in on purpose.  I know you're not supposed to feed the animals at the zoo, but sometimes it's fun :D
