The progress up there amazes me, it's not like it's centrally located (other than the middle of nowhere),
much appreciate the shots.

Laying lots of track. Do they need any 3-way switch stands?

This is fascinating, given the history of the line.  How much track do they want to build, and are they planning on running a steam engine??

Track laying will continue based on rail and tie donations from BNSF.  Klondike Kate #4 expected to operate 21 August 2021 for Boreas Pass Day at Como, CO.  Short runs on yard trackage.
