NOT EXACTLY PROMONTORY POINT!

by Webmaster on February 18th, 2011

On February 15, 2011, Dividing Creek’s golden spike was hammered home, and the track work is essentially complete. There may come a time in the future when a new siding may be added or other track put in for operational purposes, but for now, I’m declaring the track work finished.
I know that most golden spikes commemorate the joining of main lines, but in Dividing Creek’s case the finishing spike came at the very end of a short industrial siding in Middlebury. When I realized what I had done, just for fun, I painted the spike head with gold gloss paint.
So instead of two locomotives meeting at the golden spike, any ceremony will come when the first revenue car is delivered to that siding.
Most of the buildings are finished, so from now on, scenery will be the number one priority.
