The Bear Bones and Broke Railroad Co.

A Work in Progress
December 9, 2001

Dan Hoag and Karen moved about a half ton
of decomposed granite into the layout.

And buildings . . .

The tunnel portal hasn't been fastened down,
but the south waterfall is almost complete.

Near the top of the photo you can see
the north stream which needs only water.
Plumbing for the waterfall and stream has
been installed but not connected to the pump.

The view from the south.

Another view from the south.
