Railway Update

As our Saint John club prepares to host the May 2016 MFMR /NER convention, I am working on several upgrades and expansions so that everything is ready.  In the photo above, progress is slowly being made on the new industrial area in Lakeville (located on the upper level in the former furnace room -- above Northampton).  In addition to the two tenement buildings located just across the tracks, there are four large industrial buildings. There will be lots of switching in Lakeville.
In South Newbridge, the furniture factory has been upgraded.  A kiln has been added along with a receiving area for lumber to be delivered to the factory.  The big furnace will require occasional tank car loads of bunker C oil.
