It's late October, and still the tracks haven't been laid, nor the roadbed prepared, to extend the track the remaining 1/10th of a mile into the quarry. I just drove by the end of tracks last weekend, when taking my kid ice-skating.

In the mean time, a new retail center is getting built next to the tracks.

What a waste of state money.

March 8 2017: still no activity at the end of track to complete it into the quarry. I did see a NS crew on the branch apparently surveying the gauge of the line, but could only guess that's preventative maintenance.
