Wheelspur Recon 5/26th

Walked on my feet to Wheelspur and looked with my eyes from a publicly accessible location:

The switching lead has been cut back to a new bumper block, and the eastern section has been connected to C secondary with a new switch. There are two tracks in Wheelspur, one follows the perimeter, and one runs next to the two buildings.

It seems logical that they would be double ended, along with the switching lead as well, but I can't see any evidence (yet) of connections at the DB bridge end.

Nice map. I drove by there the other day - that west end switch follows an old alignment of a track that was buried in the asphalt. Going to be nice to see freight being switched down there.

It will be a little silly if they don't add an east end switch.

Haven't walked it, but from driving over the Pulaski it sure seems like the two new Wheelspur tracks now come together and rejoin the main right before the swing bridge.

Crews still working on this today. The lot looks a whole lot better than it used to (after the hurricane & fire).
