Mount Kaukau coming along

The railroad will have a steep spiral track climbing a "mountain" to test the climbing abilities of folks' Shays etc...

The hill is coming along. Quite a bit of rock bought (Plimmerton Landscape Supplies, now in Grenada North), hauled, and placed. Trackbed prepared.

Two tunnels installed.

All grades and alignments done by "eyecrometer" but I think it is about 6% uncompensated.

Now to "install" one more load of rock, some more soil to build the height, irrigation, weedmat, and plants, a trestle supporting the 4' diameter curve, lay track...
