Wadesboro Staging Yard Benchwork and Vinylbed Completed!
CSXT Shenandoah Division crews have been busy since the
06/14/2004 Progress Report. As usual, a variety of projects
are either underway or completed, but the biggest news in this update is that
the CSXT roadway crews have finished their work at the
Wadesboro staging yard of June 20, 2004!
On June 16, 2004, roadway crews completed the installation of benchwork
(subroadbed, risers, and joists) on the main portion of the railroad by building
the final piece of benchwork to close the loops at the Wadesboro staging yard.
The only remaining benchwork to build for the layout consists of the NS Roanoke
staging yard and the Potts Valley Railway.
Once the benchwork was completed, the roadway crews installed the remaining
Vinylbed roadbed at Wadesboro in preparation for the track crews to finish
laying all the remaining track in the staging loops. This work was completed on
June 20, 2004.
