It's Friday pm and things are quiet railway wise in Avon village but-
the ballast regulator (I think that is what that machine is called) is on the siding for King Cole Bean waiting for it's next job
while resting on the other side of the yard, by the construction stuff, the back-hoe sits.
I wonder what tomorrow will bring?

New ties are sitting near the North end of the new East siding.
New switch to complete the siding?
As well, you an see some ties along the edge of the siding to Kraft. Tie replacement there!

Was at Industry and noticed new ballast had been poured along the mainline. Wonder when it would be spread/tampered? And how much of the line has new ballast?

From Gene Blabey himself;

The recently announced grant for track work on the WNYP main line between Carrolton and Salamanca involves an equal match provided by the WNYP.  The work is to be completed in 2012.
 
Rehabilitation of the Bath & Hammondsport's original line between Bath Jct. to a siding adjacent to the Steuben County Jail also requires a local match (10 percent).  That track is currently out of service.  After completion next year, B&H Rail Corp. will be able to serve Steuben County IDA industrial sites in the area of the jail.

Some tie replacement in the Avon yard seems to be taking place. I am not sure where all the new ones went or will be going but I saw some new ties laying by the switch north of 5 &20 and some by the road into Al-Don.

About 25 truck loads of stone are on the ground in the yard at Avon village. Something happening soon.

About 100 new ties are sitting on the ground in the Avon Village yard. Looks like some replacements going in.

Does someone know what is being constructed at the yard in Rochester? As I drive over the crossing at Scottsville Road and look West I see something going on. Does anyone know what is happening?

More new ties have shown up at the yard in Avon. Does anyone know what section of track is going to get these replacements?

The new ties that showed up in the yard a couple of months ago are being spread north of the village of Avon. I am looking forward to watching some tie replacing soon.
