ORHC - turntable project 1/23 Update
Author: asheldrake

Not real exciting but progress....today loads of gravel were added to the bottom of the pit along with compacting......the turntable pivot was moved out of the bulding after rehab in preparation for the move to it's final operating location.   Arlen

Arlen, I love these updates and appreciate you taking the time to do them, even on "boring" days. Your updates have become a regular part of my day and when there isn't one I feel as if my day is not complete. Keep up the great work.

I sense a need for an "ORHC Turntable Construction Project" support group after the table's first successful turn.

I wonder when the turntable pivot will be filled with oil. Likely after it is installed on its new concrete center location?

I'll bet that the pivot is probably being put in place as I am posting this message.  I wanted to be there when it was done but was too early and can't change my afternoon plans.

Just noticed the 4449 in the front window of the the ORHC watching the activity outside.  I'm a little slow on the uptake sometimes.

Thank you John and Arlen for the time you take to cover the progress and putting your photos and videos on here.  This truly is a BFD.
