Fairhaven Wiring Complete

D&H Electrical hard at work.

Today marked a major milestone in the build of the D&H Champlain Division (version 4.0).

The D&H electrician attended the town of Fairhaven and completed the install of the track feeders and turnout machines.

Before long the first train arrived in Fairhaven to drop of cars to the Glass Factory that is the major industry in town.

Here are a few pictures to mark the occasion.

Once the works in Fairhaven had been completed the maintenance team set about checking all automatic turnout machines to ensure that they work reliably.

After a few hours of work in adjusting turnout machines, changing throw rod's to thinner rods, all turnouts are now throwing reliably.

Now to add extra cork in the town of Whitehall between the yard tracks and print industry labels for each town industry.

Once completed then it will be time to invite the road crews over to have a layout shakedown.

Stay tuned..

Today 9 turnouts and 13 feeder wires were added to Willsboro. This completes the wiring to enable cars to be switched at the Paper Mill complex at Willsboro.

Once the deck was cleared the first train came into town to drop off a few box cars.

Here are a few pictures to mark the occasion.

Stay tuned for the next update that will see the electrical work completed in Fairhaven.
