 6-12-11, Tom D took an old transfer table that keeps getting moved around as it was just too good to throw out and put it over the drain channel by the fences along the railroad track. This is the same channel that goes in front of the club house. I had some broken up cement walk ways that Phil and I stacked up and set the ends of the ( new bridge] to Philville on. There is still a lot of fill to add and some adjustments but its a start.

I will need to build a Y switch to go in by the trestle and miss Joe's apple tree when setting the track that will make a s curve to the main line from Philville but I think it will look good when done.
