Now that the RR Crew has gotten the track project under control, they needed something else to occupy their time!

Sitting around in the roundhouse one day, they were overheard saying... "Let's move the Baker Depot!"

Work started in earnest this past weekend getting the site work done, and setting up forms for the footings.

Diligent work and careful planning mean you only have to cut, or dig once! Here Ken Ronsberg and Jerry Asher work on setting one of the forms, under the careful supervision of Ken's wife Carole.



Later in the day Tom Hall and Fred Bohjanen showed up to lend their expertise.



Part of Tom's expertise was showing Ken the proper way to hold the grade stick!



And here their fearless leader, Jerry is looking through the level. not sure what he is looking at, but I think he may be shooting a straight line down the track for some of Jerry Christiansen's tree plantings... :biglaugh::eek:



The Baker move is off to a great start! Watch here for more updates as it progresses!

Wow Jeff! Generous offer!

I suspect that the powers that be will be in contact with you! There would be no shortage of people willing to help out with something like this!

Thanks...!

Baker Depot Update

Has the Baker Depot been moved? Or maybe I should ask is the Baker Depot going to be moved? If so post an update.

It is going to be moved Jim... I thing the RR division is working with Jeff on the plans. Not sure of a time frame, but it should be sooner rather than later.

Jeff is my dad, they met today he has told me that we will be bringing the equipment down in two weeks, and the exact move date is undecided but as u say sooner rather than later.

Kim... If you look carefully in the first post in this thread you can see the service building in the background. The exact location will be immediately south of the post office and just north of the east gate crossing on Main Street.
