D&H Electrical Department arrives in Saratoga Springs

Saratoga Springs Electrical work complete.

Today the D&H electrical department arrived in Saratoga Springs to commission the turnouts, block detection and track power for the house track, Corinth branch and spur tracks.

There were 9 turnouts to install tortoise machines and power plus numerous spur tracks.

After a solid days work yesterday and the remaining work completed today, the first train with cars for Saratoga springs arrived in town and before long all industries were being serviced by the Railroad.

Some minor tweaking of a few check rails was required on some hand built turnouts.

See below for a few pictures of the work completed. (Not that you can see the electrical work).

I managed to spend a good how switching the town as there are a few run arounds needed to get cars into the right location.

Next stop Ft Edward track work.

Stay tuned.
