1 MARCH 2000
A three-person team visited the installation to examine the railroad network. During this visit, all track
(except the short piece leading to the old coal/gravel chute) was examined by walking inspection, and all
primary routes were traveled with the installation's 120-ton locomotive. In addition, those who were
familiar with the track were interviewed about deficiencies they had observed and about track work
performed in recent years.
This report is intended to assist in the preparation of contract specifications for remedial track work.
Neither the field investigation nor this report is intended to cover every detail required for proper
restoration of the railroad network, nor is this report intended to be a substitute for a complete statement
of work and specifications. There are, in fact, several items noted that will require additional examination
and decisions before a complete and final remedial work plan can be established.
Accompanying this report are both general and detailed track maps and photographs (with notes)
showing portions of the railroad network and representative defects.
